BAGHDAD- A suicide bomber killed at least 27 Shi'ite militiamen on the outskirts of the Iraqi town of Jurf al-Sakhar on Monday, a day after security forces pushed Islamic State militants out the area, army and police sources said.

The attacker, driving an army vehicle packed with explosives, also wounded 60 Shi'ite militiamen, who had helped government forces retake the town just south of the capital.
