Iraq Suicide Attack Kills 17           10/20 06:26

   BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi officials say a suicide bomber has targeted a Shiite 
mosque in central Baghdad, killing at least 17 worshippers.

   A police officer says the attacker blew up his explosives-laden vest as 
people were leaving the al-Khairat mosque in Baghdad's Sinak commercial area 
following noon prayers on Monday. He says at least 25 people were wounded in 
the explosion.

   The attack comes a day after a suicide bombing targeted a Shiite mosque in 
the capital's western Harithiya neighborhood, killing 28 worshippers.

   A medical official confirmed the casualty figures. Both officials spoke on 
condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to talk to media.
