Following Iraqi elections in March, a state of unrest characterizes the country, which saw its worst day of violence yet this year, with hundreds dead and injured Monday, the BBC reported Tuesday.

A textile factory in the city of Hilla sustained deadly bomb attacks, with at least 45 reported dead. Two car bombs detonated outside the factory at midday, followed by a third suicide detonation as rescuers came on the scene, the report added. The violence has been attributed to Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Additional attacks were reported south of Baghdad in Suwayra, Basra, Falluja, and Iskandiriya and Mosul, the BBC said.
