At least 30 killed in Iraq attack
by UPI

BAGHDAD -- The funeral for a retired Iraqi army officer exploded into bloody chaos Tuesday when a suicide bomber blew himself up, killing at least 30 mourners.

Police said the attack in Baghdad also left at least 32 more wounded, the BBC reported.

The explosion occurred as mourners gathered for the funeral of Nabil Hussein Jassim, who had been killed by a car bomb in Baghdad Friday, the British network said.

The latest attack came the same day Iraqi officials released statistics showing the number of civilians killed in the war-torn nation continues to fall. The December death toll was 480, down from almost 900 two months earlier and about 2,000 in December 2006, the BBC said.

U.S. military deaths also fell in December, slipping to 21 compared to more than 100 in December 2006, the network said.
