Iraq unrest: Deadly blast at Baquba political rally

A suicide bomb and grenade attack has killed at least 22 people and injured about 50 at a political rally in the eastern Iraqi city of Baquba.

A grenade was thrown into the crowd gathered inside a large tent and, seconds later, a suicide bomber blew himself up in the same tent.

In recent weeks more than 11 candidates standing in this month's local elections have been shot dead.
