Iraqis are steeped in mourning Thursday for the nearly one thousand Shi'ite pilgrims killed in a stampede Wednesday during a religious procession across a Baghdad bridge.
Funeral tents have been erected in Shi'ite neighborhoods of the capital, including the Sadr City slum.
Officials say many people are still searching for missing loved ones, and bodies continue to be pulled from the Tigris River.
The stampede erupted when rumors of a suicide bomber swept the massive crowd, triggering panic. Women, children and the elderly were among those trampled or drowned in the river below.
In other news, the U.S. military says it has conducted another air strike in the western town of Husaybah. A building used by insurgents to plan and launch attacks was destroyed in the strike.
