A suicide bomber detonated his explosives inside a Shiite Muslim mosque in the northern Iraqi city of Tuz Khurmato, killing at least 35 people and wounding 70 others on Wednesday, security and medical officials said.

The blast struck at the Sayida al-Shuhada mosque in Tuz Khurmatu, 175 kilometres (110 miles) north of Baghdad, and targeted the funeral of a relative of a politician who was killed a day earlier.
