28 killed in suicide attack at a major Sunni mosque in Baghdad

At least 28 people have died, including a deputy, and over 30 wounded in a suicide bombing on Sunday against a major Sunni mosque in Baghdad, according to medical sources reported. "We have received 28 bodies and 30 injured. Ambulances and police cars are still bringing victims," said a spokesman for the Yarmuk Hospital in Baghdad.

The attack was carried out shortly after the end of evening prayers in this mosque in the neighborhood of Ghazaliya (west) and the prominent personalities who usually attend Sunni. "A suicide bomber entered the main hall of the mosque and blew himself up," said Qutaiba to Falahi, the press officer of the Sunni Board, an organization that manages Sunni religious sites.

In addition, the attack coincided with the last days of the Muslim holy month, the Ramadan, which began on 1 August this year could end on Monday or Tuesday.
