Iraq: 20 killed in suicide bombing in Abu Ghraib

Iraqi officials say at least 20 people have been killed when a suicide bomber struck tribal leaders west of Baghdad.
An Interior Ministry official and a local policeman say the bomber struck a group of tribal leaders Tuesday as they left the mayor's office in the town of Abu Ghraib. The attack comes two days after a suicide bomber killed 30 people in east Baghdad.
The Interior Ministry official says 25 people also have been wounded in the attack.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they wasn't authorized to release the information.
The Iraqi military's press office has confirmed there was a suicide bombing but has not given casualty figures.
