Twin blasts Saturday in Damascus, Syria, killed at least 40 Iraqi Shiite pilgrims and wounded 120 more, according to Iraq’s Foreign Ministry.

The explosions took place at the Bab al-Saghir Cemetery in the Syrian capital.

The attackers used improvised explosive devices, Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Jamal said in a statement.

The ministry said the pilgrims were visiting “holy shrines” at Bab al-Saghir, one of Syria’s largest and oldest cemeteries.

No one has claimed responsibility for the bombings.
