Iraq bomber kills 20 in Sunni mosque

A suicide bomber killed 20 people inside a crowded Sunni mosque north of Baghdad today, police said, as Iraq struggles to contain its worst violence since 2008.
The bomber detonated explosives soon after entering the Abu Bakr al-Sadiq Mosque as the imam gave the Friday sermon in the town of Al-Wajihiyah, a police colonel said. A doctor confirmed the toll from the blast which also wounded 40 people.

‘I was sitting near the main entrance of the mosque when a huge explosion happened,’ sending dirt and objects flying, said Sinan Ghalib.
He woke up in a hospital in the nearby city of Baquba with a serious wound in his left leg. Omar Mundhir was also wounded in the leg by the explosion.
