Sixteen dead in mosque suicide bombing.
At least 16 people have lost their lives in a vicious suicide bombing which took place in a mosque in Iraq. The tragedy occurred during the Friday prayers in a mosque in Saddam Hussein’s home town of Tikrit. This has been the second major attack in recent times.
Over 54 people are among the wounded and some of them are in a critical condition. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Tikrit was Saddam’s home town and several of his close relatives still live there.
