Photos: Twin Bombings Rock BaghdadTwo suicide car bombs exploded in downtown Baghdad Sunday, killing at least 155 people and delivering a powerful blow to the heart of the fragile city's government in the worst attack of the year.
Mourners carry the coffin of a victim killed in Sunday's suicide bombing in Baghdad during a funeral procession Monday. Iraqi security forces blocked streets near the capital as authorities investigated the pair of bombings that killed more than 150.
Funeral services were held throughout the city on Monday. The attacks targeted Baghdad's provincial council and the Justice Ministry, and were the deadliest in the capital since 2007.

The blasts went off in front of the headquarters of the Baghdad provincial administration and near the Ministry of Justice building during the morning rush hour as people headed to work.
The street where the blasts occurred was just reopened to vehicle traffic a few months ago, in what was supposed to be a sign that safety was returning to the city.
Video images captured on a cell phone show the second blast from two huge car bombs.
The explosions also injured more than 500 people, who were taken to six area hospitals.
The area is just a few hundred yards from the heavily protected Green Zone that houses the U.S. Embassy and the prime minister's offices.
