A truck exploded Saturday as worshippers left a Sunni mosque in a city in a volatile area west of Baghdad, killing at least 35 people and wounding 62, local police said. The blast occurred in Habbaniyah, 80 kilometers west of Baghdad, after prayer services at the mosque, which is adjacent to a police station, police officer Abdul-Aziz Mohammed said.
