BAGHDAD - A suicide bomber detonated his explosives at a Shi'ite funeral in Iraq's Baquba city on Monday, killing at least 15 people and wounding 40 more, police and hospital sources said.

A wave of bombings in June on Shi'ite pilgrims and religious sites has killed more than 130 people so far, reviving fears of widespread sectarian violence, in some of the bloodiest attacks since US troops left Iraq at the end of last year.
