A car bomb has ripped through a funeral tent in a mainly Shia Muslim area of Baghdad, killing 48 people.
Officials say that another 78 people were wounded in the mid-afternoon blast in the north-western Shula district.
Angry mourners attacked police who rushed to the scene, accusing them of failing to provide protection.
The funeral attack comes after a series of bombings killed dozens of Shia pilgrims during their annual pilgrimage to the holy city of Karbala last week.
