Baghdad: Iraqi officials say a double bombing at a Sunni funeral in Baghdad today has killed 14 people. It was the third day in a row in which funerals were attacked in the Iraqi capital.
They say the blasts hit near a mourning tent for one of four people killed two days before when gunmen shot up a store discretely selling liquor in the Sunni neighbourhood of Azamiyah.
A security official said another 35 were wounded. A medical official confirmed the casualty figures. Both spoke anonymously as they were not authorised to brief the media.
The Azamiyah shooting was believed to be carried out by hard-line Sunni militants, who are most likely to attack liquor stores in Sunni areas.
