Baghdad, Apr 19: Iraqi police and morgue officials say the death toll in a suicide bombing inside a Baghdad cafe has risen to 32 while 65 are wounded.




A suicide bomber set off his explosive belt inside the cafe on Thursday night. The cafe was packed with young people enjoying water pipes and playing pool.

Some bodies were found in a back street as people were thrown out of the cafe by the powerful explosion.
