VIDEO Shows Aftermath of ISIS Suicide Attack in Iraq’s Samarra, 11 Martyred
The spokesman for Salahuddin province, Ali al-Hamdani, said a suicide bomber blew himself up among Shia pilgrims after detonating a parked car bomb.
Iranian pilgrims were among the casualties.
The city, 60 miles (95 kilometers) north of Baghdad, is home to a revered Shia shrine.
Al-Hamdani added that another suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into a check point outside the Salahuddin provincial capital, Tikrit, killing at least nine people and wounding 25.
Al-Alam News Network could not verify the authenticity of the ISIS claim, but it was posted on a militant website commonly used by the extremists.
