A suicide bomber detonated a vest loaded with explosives at a Shiite funeral in eastern Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least 32 people and wounding 34 others, police and ambulance officials said.
The explosion took place in Baghdad's eastern Zayouna neighborhood, a mixed Shiite and Sunni district, the officials said on customary condition of anonymity.
The funeral was being held for Nabil Hussein Jassim, a retired army officer who had been killed in a car bombing in downtown Baghdad's Tayaran Square on Friday. That blast left at least 14 people dead.
