A suicide bombing struck a Shiite procession north of Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 15 worshippers and wounding 65 others, security and medical officials said.

The attack in restive Diyala province north of Baquba coincides with the peak of the rituals of Ashura when Shiite Muslims commemorate the anniversary of the death of a key religious figure.
