Suicide bomber kills at least 14 in north Baghdad


BAGHDAD: A suicide bomber attacked a Shiite-majority area of north Baghdad on Monday, killing at least 14 people, security and medical officials said. The blast in Kadhimiyah, which is home to a revered Shiite shrine, also wounded at least 43 people. The bomber struck near vendors selling goods on the pavement in the district’s crowded Aden Square, an Agence France-Presse correspondent reported. It is the second suicide bombing to hit the capital in three days. On Saturday, an attack inside a restaurant in the Baghdad Jadida area killed at least 23 people.
