Reports from Iraq say the death toll in a triple bombing in the southern city of Basra on November 24 has risen to 19.

At least 65 other people were wounded in the evening attack.

Many of the casualties were police and soldiers.

An Interior Minister official said two bombs exploded simultaneously in a market in central Basra.

A third bomb went off as people gathered at the scene.

Violence has declined in Iraq since its peak in 2006-2007, but attacks across the country remain common.
