An Iraqi official says a suicide bomber has blown himself up among mourners at a Shiite funeral in northern Iraq, killing at least 14 people.

Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir al-Zaidi, a military commander, says the bomber detonated his explosive belt Wednesday inside a mosque in the city of Tuz Khormato, some 120 kilometers (130 miles) north of Baghdad.

The city is disputed by Arabs, Kurds and Turkomen, all of whom have claims to it.

Al-Zaidi said at least 44 people were wounded in the attack, including some provincial officials.
