BAGHDAD - Iraqi officials say at least 25 people have been killed in a series of attacks across the country today.
Authorities say 20 were killed and 35 wounded when a suicide bomber set off an explosive belt during a funeral attended by members of the Shabak ethnic minority near Mosul in northern Iraq.
In other violence, police officials say a roadside bomb hit a car just north of Baghdad, killing the driver and his wife.
An 11-year old boy was killed when a bomb hit a minibus about 95 miles northeast of Baghdad.
And gunmen stormed a tile factory in eastern Baghdad, killing the factory owner and a worker.
Iraq is weathering its deadliest bout of violence in half a decade. More than 4,000 people have been killed in violent attacks since the start of April, including 804 just in August, according to United Nations figures.
