Iraq conflict: Suicide attack on wedding kills 17
A suicide car bomb attack on a wedding west of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, has killed at least 17 people and injured many more.
The attack in the town of Ameriyat Fallujah appeared to target Sunni Muslim local officials who were attending the wedding.
No group has said it was behind the attack but so-called Islamic State (IS) has carried out similar bombings.
Men from the mainly Sunni area have joined a tribal militia fighting IS.
The jihadist group is under intense pressure further north where a month-long government offensive is trying to drive them out of the city of Mosul.
Earlier this week, twin suicide bombings killed at least six people in the city of Fallujah, north-west of Ameriyat Fallujah.
In June, Iraqi forces declared Fallujah "fully liberated" from IS after more than a month of heavy fighting.
Meanwhile, in Mosul bad weather has forced Iraqi forces to pause their advance.
The military said poor visibility was hindering the ability of warplanes to provide cover.
IS fighters were putting up fierce resistance, using snipers, booby traps and suicide car bombs but the army said troops would secure eastern areas they had entered.
