Suicide bomber targets soccer fans

Football fans celebrating an Iraqi win in a World Cup qualifier have been targeted by a female suicide bomber who maimed 34 people north of Baghdad.

The young woman, in traditional Islamic robe, struck as dozens poured on to the streets after watching Iraq beat China 2-1 on TV in a cafe in Qara Tappah.

She told police she was waiting for her husband, but blew herself up after an officer spotted the detonator.
