Wave of Iraq attacks, Shiite mosque bombing, kill 27

BAGHDAD--A wave of attacks in Iraq, including a suicide bombing at a Shiite mosque in Baghdad, killed 27 people Tuesday, the latest in a protracted surge in bloodshed.

In the deadliest attack, a suicide bomber blew himself up at the entrance to a Shiite mosque in central Baghdad's Shorja neighborhood as worshippers were performing ablutions ahead of mid-day prayers.

At least 19 people were killed and 34 wounded in the blast at the Abu al-Timan Husseiniyah, near the headquarters of the Baghdad mayoralty, security and medical officials said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing.
