TIKRIT, Iraq - A suicide bomber blew himself up inside a cafe in a mainly Shi'ite town north of the Iraqi capital on Saturday, killing at least 12 people, police said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the bomb attack, but suicide bombings are the hallmark of Sunni Islamist al-Qaida, which views Shi'ites as non-believers and has been regaining momentum this year.
