Residents pray over the coffin of a victim who was killed in a bomb attack, during a funeral in al-Rashidiya district of Baghdad, May 3, 2013. A roadside bomb killed a Sunni cleric and five worshippers when they left a mosque in Baghdad after Friday prayers, police and medics said, as regional sectarian violence threatens to return Iraq to all-out conflict. Iraq has become increasingly volatile as the civil war in neighbouring Syria strains volatile relations between Sunnis and Shi'ites. April saw the most killings since 2008, but was below the height of sectarian bloodletting in 2006-07. A further 31 people were wounded in the blast outside the mosque in al-Rashidiya district of Baghdad, medics said. It was not clear who was behind the attack.
