HILLA, Iraq (Reuters) - The death toll from Sunday's suicide bomb attack on Iraqi pilgrims heading to a Shi'ite festival south of Baghdad has risen to 63, a health official said on Monday.

It is of course good that there has been a decline in the number of mass casualty events, but it's also important to consider what it'd be like if we had even one of these types of things per year in this (a much smaller) country.
