Iraqi police and hospital officials say the death toll has reached 51 a day after the bombing of a Shiite funeral that triggered a near riot by Baghdad residents seething over security lapses.
Thursday's blast, which government officials blamed on insurgents seeking to undermine Iraq's safety before a March meeting of Arab leaders in Baghdad, also wounded about 123 people.
The officials confirmed the new casualty count on Friday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not allowed to release the information.
The attack infuriated Iraqis who pelted security forces with sticks and stones for failing to stop the deadly strike.
It was the latest major attack in over a week of violence in Iraq, mostly targeting Shiites and security forces.
