Attacks across Iraq, including a bombing at a Sunni mosque north of Baghdad, killed 33 people Friday in the latest eruption of violence to rock the country, officials said.

The deadliest of Friday's attacks took place when a bomb struck a Sunni mosque that was full of worshippers in the village of Umm al-Adham on the outskirts of Baqouba, a former militant stronghold 60 kilometers (35 miles) northeast of Baghdad, police officials said.

Police said the blast killed 30 people and wounded at least 45.
