    Suicide bombing at Iraqi funeral kills at least 25

    Feb 29, Baghdad: A suicide bombing at a funeral north of Baghdad has killed at least 25 people and wounded dozens, Iraqi officials said.

    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. 

    Hospital officials confirmed the updated 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, reports said.
