The attackers were disguised in security uniforms and drove stolen army vehicles when they targeted a police checkpoint and two restaurants.

The so-called Islamic State group has said it carried out the attack.

"Sixty people were killed, including Iranian citizens", said Jasim al-Khalidi, the Director General of Health in the Dhi Qar Province.

Mr al-Nassiri said the majority of the dead were expected to be Iranian pilgrims who were inside the restaurant.

He warned that the death toll could rise as numerous wounded were in serious condition.

The attacks in the southern province of Thi Qar on Thursday started with unidentified gunmen opening fire inside a restaurant on the main highway that links the capital Baghdad with the southern provinces. Three police officers are among the dead.

Shia Muslim-dominated Thi Qar is located about 200 miles south-east of Baghdad. In short statement released by its propaganda organ Qama, organization wrote that several suicide bombers participated in this attack, which killed " dozens of shiites ". Shiites and other ethnic and religious minorities have often been targets of Sunni militants in Iraq, including al-Qaeda and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

The area targeted is used by pilgrims and visitors from neighbouring Iran headed for the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala further north, although Dhiqar has previously been spared the worst of the violence.
