BAGHDAD (Reuters), security sources said at least 20 people were killed and 50 people were wounded in the Thursday evening attack on a Shi’ite shrine north of the Iraqi capital.

It is the shrine of Imam Mohamed bin Ali al-Hadi, who was targeted by the attack, in Balad, about 93 kilometers north of Baghdad.

And it blew up a car bomb driven by a suicide outer gate of the shrine, which allowed for a couple of gunmen stormed the site and start shooting at visitors.
