Bombs At Sunni Funeral in Iraq Kill 15

Officials in Iraq say two bombs have exploded during a funeral in Baghdad, killing at least 15 people.

Police say the back-to-back explosions went off inside a funeral tent Monday in the mainly Sunni neighborhood of Azamiyah. They say the blasts wounded another 30 people.

The bombings are the third attack in as many days to target a funeral in Baghdad.

On Sunday, an attack at another Sunni funeral left 12 people dead, while on Saturday a double suicide attack on a Shiite funeral killed at least 73 mourners.

A recent reemergence of apparent retaliatory killings in Iraq has raised fears of renewed sectarian conflict in the country.
