A suicide bomber targeted mourners at a Shiite mosque south of Baghdad Sunday, killing 27 people, police and a doctor said, the latest in a series of attacks on funerals.
The blast, which collapsed the roof of Al-Hussein Mosque in the Musayyib area, also wounded 35 people.
"The collapse of the mosque roof killed many of those who were present," said Hamza Habib, who went to the scene after the blast.
"Blood was everywhere in the mosque, and I saw some body parts of victims."
