Iraqi security officials say a suicide bomber has attacked a
Shiite mosque in Baghdad, killing at least 11 people and wounding 20.
Ministry spokesman Brig. Gen. Saad Maan said the attacker detonated his
bomb in the doorway of the mosque as worshippers were exiting after
midday prayers on Thursday.
No one immediately claimed
responsibility for the blast. The Islamic State group, which controls
large swaths of northern and western , has repeatedly targeted
Shiite Muslims, who it views as apostates.
