More than 40 people were killed at a funeral in Iraq, when a suicide bomber dressed as a mourner detonated his explosives among the crowd in the middle of a Shi’ite mosque.

It happened in the city of Tuz Khurmato.

Survivors said the attacker wore his explosives under a suit to blend in. More than 75 people were wounded.

It’s the fourth suicide attack in a week in Iraq.

The Shi-ite prime minister Nuri al-Maliki has faced weeks of street protests by Sunnis demanding changes in two measures that they say unfairly target the Sunni community.
