Text size Aa Aa

At least 31 people have been killed in the Iraqi capital in a suicide attack on a funeral procession.

It brings the death toll from sectarian violence to more than 400 since a political crisis erupted last month.

The bomber exploded his vehicle near a group of mourners passing by a small market street in the mainly Shi’ite Zaafaraniya neighbourhood of Baghdad.

The funeral was for a Shi’ite estate agent who was killed by gunmen in the city a day earlier. Police say the motive for his murder is not clear.
