15 dead in Baghdad suicide bomb on Shiites

Twin suicide bombs on a Shiite Muslim religious hall in north Baghdad on Tuesday killed 31 people and wounded 57 others, officials said, updating an earlier toll.

The two attackers struck after midday prayers at the Habib ibn al-Mudhaher hussainiyah in the capital’s Qahira neighbourhood, an interior ministry official and medical sources said.
