BAGHDAD (AP) -- At least 23 people have been killed in a suicide bombing in a town in northern Iraq.

The bomber struck a tent filled with Kurdish funeral mourners in a town where Kurds and Arabs are competing for power. More than 30 people were injured.

Elsewhere, eight people were killed and 10 wounded in a bombing near a bus stop west of Baghdad, and a policeman died and eight people were wounded in a suicide blast at a market in the northern town of Tal Afar.

A series of high-profile bombings this month has raised concern that insurgents may be regrouping as the U.S. begins to scale down combat operations .
