Death Toll From Iraq Suicide Bombing Rises To At Least 33

Iraqi officials say the death toll from a suicide bombing on February 12 has risen to at least 33.

In one of the deadliest attacks seen in Iraq this month, the bomber detonated his explosives on a bus carrying Shi'ite pilgrims as they were returning from a religious ceremony.

The blast, which took place near the city of Samarra just north of Baghdad, left dozens wounded.

Shi'ite pilgrims are often targeted by Sunni militant groups.
