35 pilgrims killed by suicide bomber

At least 35 Shia pilgrims have been killed by a female suicide bomber at a shrine in Baghdad, Iraqi officials say.
At least 65 people were injured in the blast, in the Kadhimiya area of the Iraqi capital, where pilgrims were gathering for a religious ceremony.
Most of the casualties were from neighbouring Iran. There are fears the death toll will rise.
Processions of Shia pilgrims across Iraq have been targeted by Sunni insurgents in the past.

--Imagine the outrage, the worldwide outrage, if 35 Palestinian worshippers were killed by Israel.
