A suicide bomber detonated his explosives during a funeral ceremony Wednesday at a Shiite mosque in northern Iraq, killing 18 people, an official said.
The head of the Salahuddin provincial health directorate, Raed Ibrahim, said 18 people were killed and 45 were wounded in the attack. Another official, Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir al-Zaidi, a military commander, said at least 14 people were killed. At least 44 people were wounded in the attack, including some provincial officials, he said.
The bombing came a day after a string of attacks, including three car bombs in and around Baghdad, killed at least 22 people Tuesday.
