A car bomb killed at least six Shi'ite pilgrims on Saturday near a shrine in a town south of Baghdad, a police official said.

The bomb exploded in the mostly Shi'ite town of Musayib a day after a triple suicide bombing killed at least 70 people at a Shi'ite mosque in Baghdad.

The Musayib explosion came hours after one of Iraq's most powerful Shi'ite leaders urged his followers to resist attempts to draw them into a sectarian strife.
