A suicide bomber killed 26 people at the funeral for a member of a tiny Iraqi minority group on Saturday, one of several to strike predominantly Sunni Arab northern Iraq, beset by growing instability in recent months. The bomber blew himself in the town of Baashiqah, just outside the main northern city of Mosul, killing 26 people and wounding 46, according to a doctor at the city’s hospital. He targeted the funeral for a member of the Shabak minority who had died of natural causes, officials said. — AFP
