32 killed in suicide bomb attack in Iraq’s Baghdad

The death toll from the suicide bomb attack, targeting Shiite mourning tent in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Saturday, rose to 32 and some 60 others wounded, a police source said.
The attack occurred at noon when a suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest at a mourning tent in the crowded popular market of Shallal in the Shiite neighborhood of Shaab, the source said.
The Islamic State (IS) militant group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on Islamic websites, but the authenticity of the statement could not be independently verified.
