A suicide bomber blew himself up at a funeral procession in a northern Iraq town on Sunday, killing at least 10 people and wounding 25, police said.

The attack took place in Muqdadya, 80 km (50 miles) northeast of Baghdad, among a crowd of mourners in a cemetery. They had been escorting the body of a prominent pro-government Sunni Muslim tribal sheikh.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Iraq is suffering from its worst wave of violence in at least five years. Insurgents have increased bomb attacks and shootings against civilians and security forces.

The government says the civil war in neighbouring Syria is stirring violence in Iraq
