HILLA, Iraq - At least 25 people were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a Shi'ite Muslim mosque in an Iraqi town on Sunday where people were mourning the death of a man killed by militants a day earlier, police said.

The blast brought down the ceiling of the mosque in Mussayab, 60km (40 miles) south of the capital Baghdad. Police said some bodies were still trapped beneath the debris. At least 50 people were wounded.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the bombing, which is the latest in a spate of attacks targeting both Sunni and Shi'ite places of worship, particularly during funerals.
