BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A suicide bomber attacked a crowd of Iraqi Shi'ite pilgrims en route to a shrine on Wednesday, killing at least 25 and wounding 62 despite heavy security during a religious festival, a police source said.
The suicide bombing took place just short of a bridge where 1,000 Shi'ite pilgrims died in a stampede during the same rite in 2005 after hearing rumors of a bomb.
The attacker was wearing a belt full of explosives, the police source said. Suicide bombings are often a hallmark of Sunni Islamist groups like al Qaeda, which regard Shi'ite Muslims as apostates.
