A suicide bomber wearing an explosives belt blew himself up inside a funeral tent in a Shiite enclave in a volatile province north of Baghdad, killing at least 20 people and wounding 30, officials said. The attack occurred at 6:30 p.m. as a Shiite family was holding a funeral in Khalis, a flashpoint Shiite city in Diyala province, where US-Iraqi forces have seen fierce fighting with Sunni and Shiite militants. Ibrahim Abdullah, a doctor at the local hospital, said 20 people were killed and 30 wounded in the blast.
