At least five people were killed and more than 25 wounded Friday morning when bomb detonated at a Sunni mosque in the town of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

Officials in Tikrit, 130 kilometers north of Baghdad, say the wounded are being treated at a hospital.

Accounts conflict as to whether the bomb went off inside the mosque or on the grounds. The mosque is part of a series of palace grounds built during the Hussein era.
