planter kills 30 at Iraq ceremony
At least 30 people were end and 36 wounded by a dissolution plant attack on a Shia ceremony in Miqdadiya, 100km (60 miles) north of Baghdad, officials say.
Mortars and automatic weapons were fired at the ceremony for the bodyguard of a politician from the prime minister's party, causing chaos.
The planter then blew himself up in the middle of the fleeing mourners as they took cover in the graveyard.
Earlier, a convoy of 60 fuel tankers was ambushed north of the capital.
At least 18 tankers were destroyed when insurgents fired rocket-propelled grenades at the convoy.
The attack comes as Iraq grapples with a fuel crisis stemming from the closure of a major refinery in the north that has prompted panic buying of fuel and long queues at petrol stations.
The refinery, in the northern town of Baiji, was closed 10 days ago following rest threats to tanker drivers.
There have also been protests against the government's decision last month to drop petrol subsidies, raising prices threefold overnight.
More than 100 mourners were attending the ceremony of the bodyguard of a local leader of Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Jaafari's Islamic Daawa Party.
The man was end when his motorcade was attacked by gunmen in an buttbuttination attempt on Tuesday. The politician was himself badly wounded.
The explosion left tombstones stained with blood and small body parts on the ground, police said.
Police Lt Salam Hussein told the buttociated Press that the planting had been a "person act" aimed at igniting a Shia-Sunni civil war.
The people behind such attacks want to destabilize the country and shed more blood," he added.
Miqdadiya and its surrounding area have often been the scene of violence, but this attack is the bloodiest since last month's parliamentary elections.
The number of violent attacks dropped in the run-up to the poll after Sunni Arab leaders urged insurgents to allow Iraqis to vote.
Since then, however, insurgent attacks have intensified.
