Two suicide attackers wearing women's cloaks blew themselves up Friday in a Shi'ite mosque in northern Baghdad, killing at least 40 people and wounding scores, police said. It was the second major attack against Shi'ite targets in as many days. Police Lt. Col. Falah al-Mohammedawi said the blasts occurred at the Buratha mosque, which is affiliated with the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq, the main Shi'ite party. First reports said the explosions were caused by mortar fire, but al-Mohammedawi said police had confirmed they were suicide attacks.
