Baghdad: Suicide bomber hits funeral procession

A suicide bomber struck a funeral in Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least seven people as militants show increasing defiance to a major security operation in the capital. The attacker, wearing a belt packed with explosives, followed a funeral procession into a tent before detonating the blast in a mostly Shi'ite district of eastern Baghdad, police said. At least 15 people were wounded. In other bloodshed across Baghdad, a car bomb and a suicide attacker killed at least 11 people.
