— An Iraqi official says a suicide bomber has blown himself up among mourners at a Shiite funeral in northern Iraq, killing at least 14 people.

Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir al-Zaidi, a military commander, says the bomber detonated his explosive belt Wednesday inside a mosque in the city of Tuz Khormato, some 130 miles north of Baghdad.

The city is disputed by Arabs, Kurds and Turkomen, all of whom have claims to it.

Al-Zaidi said at least 44 people were wounded in the attack, including some provincial officials.
