Suicide bomb IraqAt least 25 people were killed and 60 injured Saturday in a bomb blast at an open air rally in central Iraq.

Officials said the attacker struck as Sunni candidate Muthana al-Jourani was meeting supporters in Baquba, 60km (35 miles) north-east of Baghdad, the BBC reported. No group has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.

According to NDTV supporters of the Azimun Ala al-Bina party, a small local list, had been gathered at around lunchtime in the city of Baquba when a militant threw a grenade before a suicide bomber then blew himself up.

A police colonel and a medic at Baquba hospital said at least 25 people were killed and 60 others were wounded.
