Eight people were killed and 11 injured in two bomb explosions on two minibuses in the town of Mussayb in south of Baghdad on Tuesday, an Interior Ministry source said.

The attacks took place in the afternoon when two bombs stuck to two minibuses carrying passengers detonated within several minutes in Mussayb, some 50 km south of Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Mussayb is part of once restive area, dubbed Triangle of Death, which is a cluster of towns scattered north of Hilla City, the capital of Babel province, some 100 km south of Baghdad.

The attacks came as Iraqis across the country are busy with the partial results of the country's March 7 parliamentary elections which will shape the future of the country.
