Police say more than 50 people were wounded in the Wednesday evening attack. They say it happened in a part of the Iraqi capital known as Kasra, a predominantly Shiite enclave in a part of the city that is otherwise largely Sunni.
They say a suicide bomber blew himself up at the gate of the mosque, and then a car he apparently arrived in exploded nearby.
Hospital officials confirmed the casualty numbers. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information.
