UPDATE: Iraq Officials Say Blasts at Shiite Mosque Kill 35 9/11/13
BAGHDAD - Iraqi officials say a double bomb attack on a Shiite mosque in northern Baghdad that struck as worshippers were leaving after prayers has killed at least 35.
Police say more than 50 people were wounded in the Wednesday evening attack. They say it happened in a part of the Iraqi capital known as Kasra, a predominantly Shiite enclave in a part of the city that is otherwise largely Sunni.
They say a suicide bomber blew himself up at the gate of the mosque, and then a car he apparently arrived in exploded nearby.
Hospital officials confirmed the casualty numbers. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information.
