At least 23 people have been killed by a suicide bomber at a Shia mosque in the Iraqi village of Tuz Khurmato, with scores more wounded, police say.

The blast targeted worshippers attending a funeral at the mosque.

Although sectarian violence in Iraq has decreased since its height in 2006 and 2007, attacks on Shia are common, with many blamed on Sunni militants.

Tuz Khurmato lies 175km (110 miles) north of the capital, Baghdad, and is populated mainly by ethnic Turkmen.

The town is disputed between the government in Baghdad and ethnic Kurds, who inhabit a semi-autonomous region in the north and claim territory in four other nearby regions.

It was the scene of a shooting in November which left the two sides in an ongoing military standoff.

More than 75 people were injured in the bomb attack, medical officials said.

Initial reports put the death toll as high as 35.

They can't even stop the killing amongst themselves. coffeetime.gif This is due to lack of education, not Islam itself.
You don't have these situations where there are schoolbooks other than the Koran and teachers, as opposed to radical clerics. sad2.gif
