Suicide bomber attacks funeral in Iraq ; kills at least 10

A suicide bomber struck a funeral procession going on in the north of Baghdad, Iraq on Monday, killing at least 10 people present there to mourn the dead. Two medical officials confirmed the casualty figures.

It was reported by the government that the bomber blew himself up inside a funeral tent in a farming area outside the mainly Sunni town of Taji, which is roughly 22 kilometers (12 miles) from Baghdad. The bombing left another 26 people wounded in the process. The funeral was organized for the death of the father of two government Sunni militias, known as Sahwa. Iraq has been trying to revive militias after it took their responsibility to fight against the Islamic State fighters. IS captured a large portion of northern and western Iraq over the summer.

However, no one has taken the responsibility of the Monday’s attack, but whenever a suicide bombing is reported, ISIS is the prime suspects as they have used human bombs in the past. IS has also been known to target Sunnis allied with the Shiite-led government as they believe the Sunnis are teaming up with the enemies.
