A suicide bomber struck a crowd of funeral mourners north of Baghdad, killing more than 30 people at the end of one of the deadliest months of the war so far for US forces. At least 104 American troops were reported killed in April. The rising toll among Americans pointed to a potentially deadly trend: More troops exposed to more dangers as they try to reclaim control of Baghdad under the joint security plan being implemented by US and Iraqi forces. Bombings and shootings nationwide Monday killed at least 102 people, counting the funeral attack.
