Suicide bomber kills 32 at Iraq funeral

By Dean Yates

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – A suicide bomber wearing a vest packed with explosives killed 32 people when he blew himself up among mourners at a Shi’ite funeral north of Baghdad on Monday, Iraqi police said.

The attack took place inside a crowded mourning tent in the town of Khalis in volatile Diyala province, police said.

More than 52 people had been wounded, police said.

Since U.S. and Iraqi forces launched a security crackdown in Baghdad in February, militants including al Qaeda have increasingly focused their attacks outside the capital.

Diyala, a religiously mixed area, has been the scene of fierce fighting between U.S. troops and al Qaeda as well as Sunni Arab insurgents. Last month, U.S. commanders sent a force of armored vehicles and 1,000 extra soldiers to the province.

Residents said the funeral had been for the son of a Shi’ite family. The son had been killed by gunmen, they said…

This is not to be confused with the Muslim bomber who killed 60 Muslims in the Muslim holy city of Karbula the other day.

They are so religious, you know.
