    A girl cries near the site of a bomb explosion in Baghdad, Iraq, Thursday.

    At least 75 people were killed in two separate attacks on Thursday after suicide bombers detonated explosives in crowded areas in and around Baghdad, according to reports.

    A woman with a suicide belt blew herself up as Iraqi police distributed food to the needy in Baghdad, killing 28 people -- including 12 officrers -- and injuring 50, the New York Timesreported.

    The second attack occurred inside a restaurant in the Diyala Province about 50 miles northwest of the capital where a bomb went off as a group of Iranian tourists were having lunch. The explosion killed 47 and injured 63, the Times reported.
