Victims of Baghdad bombs buried

Funerals have taken place for some of the 87 people killed in Tuesday's bomb attack at a mosque in Baghdad. 214 people were also injured by the explosion, which occured in a business district of the capital.

It came just 48 hours after the lifting of a curfew aimed at preventing revenge attacks in the wake of last week's bombing of another Shiite mosque in Samarra.

The explosion was the deadliest single attack in Iraq which took place two months ago, when 140 people were killed in a bomb attack near a Baghdad market.
