Suicide bombing at Iraqi funeral kills at least 14

29 February 2016, 20:51

Baghdad - Iraqi officials say a suicide bombing at a funeral north of Baghdad has killed at least 14 people and wounded 45.

Local security officials say a senior local leader of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, a powerful Shiite militia, was killed in the attack in Muqdadiyah, about 60 miles (90 kilometers) north of the capital. Security there is largely maintained by state-sanctioned Shiite militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces.

Hospital officials confirmed the toll. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to brief the press.

A bombing at a Baghdad market on Sunday by the Islamic State group killed 73 people.

In January, an IS bombing at a cafe frequented by militiamen in Muqdadiyah triggered a wave of revenge attacks on Sunni mosques and civilians.
