Suicide bomber kills 4 north of Baghdad

A suicide bomber attacked members of an Iraqi-government backed Sunni militia group on Monday, killing at least four and wounding another 21 as they collected salaries just north of Baghdad, police and hospital officials said.


The attack was the seventh suicide bombing in Iraq in one month, indicating Sunni insurgents are seeking to expand their campaign to stoke tensions against the Shi'ite-led government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. (AP)
