Death toll in Iraq cafe suicide attack rises to 32

BAGHDAD – Iraqi police and morgue officials say the death toll in a suicide bombing inside a Baghdad cafe has risen to 32 killed and 65 wounded.

A suicide bomber set off his explosive belt inside the cafe Thursday night. The cafe was packed with young people enjoying water pipes and playing pool.

Police said Friday that some bodies were found in a back street because some people were thrown out of the cafe by the powerful explosion.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.

Violence has been on the rise ahead of Iraqi provincial elections set for Saturday.
