At least 50 people have been killed in two attacks in southern Iraq.

Another 50 people were wounded in one of the attacks close to a restaurant near Nasiriyah, said a senior provincial health official, Jassem al-Khalidi.

In the first attack, gunmen opened fire and threw grenades in a crowded roadside restaurant and a suicide bomber blew up a vest. The death toll is expected to rise, health officials reported. It occurs in aftermath of a visit of iraqi prime minister, Haider Al-Abadi, in province of Dhi Qar, in particular, to Nasiriyya.

If you're one of those affected, there's nothing you can do about it - no solutions, no workarounds, no ways to avoid it. It all revolves around The Traveler, a planet-sized sphere that never speaks, but seems sentient.

The area targeted is on a highway used by Shiite pilgrims and visitors from neighbouring Iran to travel to the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala further north, although Dhiqar has previously been spared the worst of Iraq's violence.

Shortly afterward two suicide bombers, including one driving a vehicle rigged with explosives, blew themselves and the auto up at a security checkpoint nearby, Iraqi officials said.

The toll makes it the deadliest Daesh attack in Iraq since pro-government forces drove the extremists out of second city Mosul in July.
