A suicide bomber has struck a Shia mosque in the Iraqi city of Tuz Khurmato, 175 kilometres north of Baghdad.
The explosion killed at least 25 people who were attending a funeral of a politician’s relative who was shot dead a day earlier.
The latest attack follows a wave of violence on Tuesday, when three deadly blasts were detonated around Baghdad killing 17 and wounding dozens.
