TIKRIT, Iraq, July 8 (Xinhua) -- The death toll from a suicide bombing attack at a Shiite shrine in Iraq's central province of Salahudin early on Friday rose to 35 and more than 70 others were wounded, a provincial security source said.

The attack began shortly after midnight when three suicide bombers wearing explosive belts and disguised in military uniforms crossed security checkpoints and entered near the mausoleum of Saiyd Mohammed in the town of Balad, some 80 km north of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

One gunmen detonated his explosives belt at the marketplace outside the shrine and another at one of its gates, the source said, adding that two mortar rounds landed at the scene at the time of the blasts.

The third suicide bomber threw two hand grenades at a crowd of Shiite pilgrims before he blew up himself among them, the source added.

"A total of 35 people were killed and some 70 others wounded, some of them were in critical condition," the source said, citing a medical source from the nearby hospital in Balad.

Earlier in the day, a security source told Xinhua that at least 20 people were killed and some 70 others wounded when two suicide bombers detonated themselves at the shrine, while other gunmen took many Shiite pilgrims hostages.

He said the gunmen, who believed to be members of Islamic State (IS) group, also held an unknown number of Shiite pilgrims hostages inside the shrine, but the provincial security source denied that they took hostages, saying some people were caught inside the shrine.

The battle with IS caused damages to the shrine and set fire to some surrounding buildings, the source added.

In the morning, the IS militant group claimed in an online statement the responsibility for the attack, saying that three suicide bombers, including a female, attacked the shrine and killed dozens of Shiite people. The statement could not be independently verified.

The revered Imam is the son of Imam Ali al-Hadi and the brother of Hasan al-Askari, the 10th and 11th of the 12 most revered Shiite Imams respectively. The Imam died in the 9th century and his tomb lies in the domed shrine constructed in Balad.

Iraq is currently witnessing a wave of violence since the IS terrorist group took control of parts of Iraq's northern and western regions in June 2014.

An IS militant conducted a suicide bombing attack in Iraq's capital of Baghdad on Sunday which killed 292, the health ministry said early Thursday.

"The government has handed over 115 bodies to their families and identities of 177 people have yet to be determined," Health Minister Adila Hammoud said in a statement.

A suicide bomber detonated a car loaded with explosives in front of a shopping center in the commercial district in southern Baghdad on Sunday, which is the deadliest bombing attack since the U.S. invasion in 2003.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack that also left another 200 people wounded. "Most of the wounded are recovered and only 23 of them are still in the hospitals for treatment," she added.

A report by UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) estimated that 662 Iraqis were killed and 1,457 others wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in June across Iraq.

TOKYO Danny Williams USA Jersey , Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- A senior vice Cabinet Office minister in Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government announced Monday he would be leaving the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) to join a new party being formed by allies close to Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike.

Mineyuki Fukuda, 53, a third term lower house lawmaker, told a press briefing on the matter that he wants to form a new party with independent lower house member Masaru Wakasa.

"I will make a new political party with House of Representatives lawmaker Masaru Wakasa," Fukuda said, referring to the independent lawmaker who has joined forces with former Democratic Party members including Goshi Hosono and other defectors.

"I want to join the new party and work on raising up its human resources," Fukuda said, confirming his plan to run as a candidate for the envisioned new party in the expected up coming general election.

The latest development will deal a blow to Abe, who doubles as the LDP's president, who is expected to announce on Monday his contentious plan to dissolve the all-important lower house of parliament for a snap general election in October.

Fukuda was first elected to the lower house in 2005. While being defeated in the 2014 general election in his Kanagawa Prefecture constituency, however, he managed to retain his seat on the LDP's proportional representation list.

The new party, envisioned by Wakasa and Hosono, has seen a number of defectors jump ship from their parties to join the embryonic party that will field 50 or more candidates in all of Tokyo's 25 constituencies.

Along with those jumping ship from the LDP, the exodus from the main opposition Democratic Party of late will also be frustrating for the party and its new leader Seiji Maehara, who has stated that unity within the party ranks was vitally important for it to mount a serious challenge to the ruling coalition in the expected election.

The latest defections on both sides come at a time that both parties have been discussing their campaign pledges and mapping out their overall paradigmatic content of their platforms.

The opposition camp has also been looking into ways it can cooperate in the election to garner the maximum amount of public support and launch a political attack on the ruling party, which some political watchers believe that, in light of the LDP's recent scandal-mired run, might be a series challenge.

Abe opting not to give a policy speech, not to hold a budget committee speech nor to deliberate burning issues in pa.
