Attack in West of Baghdad Kills 14, Wounds 32

Iraqi officials say a suicide bomber targeting a Sunni mosque west of Baghdad has killed 14 and wounded 32.

The attack struck an Abu Ghraib mosque last night as worshippers gathered to pray after breaking their fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

Police and hospital officials confirmed the tolls and spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not allowed to release information.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but it does not necessarily bear the hallmarks of Islamic State group attacks.

IS attacks of which Baghdad and surrounding areas experienced an uptick in last month generally target Shiite civilians and security infrastructure.

On Sunday, Iraqi forces declared Fallujah fully liberated from IS after the operation to retake the city was launched late last month.
