35 killed in Iraq suicide bombing, police say

A suicide bombing at a funeral has killed dozens of people and wounded scores more including two senior Iraqi government officials in northern Iraq.

At least 35 people were killed in the bombing near a Shiite mosque in northern Iraq, police said. The attack occurred in the ethnically mixed town of Tuz Khurmatu, roughly 56 miles south of Kirkuk.

Among the injured is Ahmed Abdul-Wahed, deputy governor of Salaheddin province, a largely Sunni region in north central Iraq.
