Mourning another deadly attack in Iraq, residents load the victims of a suicide blast into trucks. The attack occurred during a Friday sermon at the Abu Baker Al-Sadiq mosque, in the confessionally mixed Diyala province of eastern Iraq. A suicide bomber blew himself up, killing at least 20. The Mosque is Sunni, and the attack is the latest in a series of blasts that have raised fears of a return to full-blown sectarian conflict in a country where Kurds, Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims have yet to find a stable powering sharing arrangement.
