An attack on a funeral procession in northern Iraq has killed several people, the country's military has said.
Iraqi Armed Forces said the attack in the province of Salahaddin claimed a "number of victims" but were not more specific in detail.
A security official said armed militants had opened fire and killed eight people, including police and civilians.
The official added that it had been carried out by the so-called Islamic State (IS) group.
Iraq's military said details will be provided after an investigation.
At least 30 people were killed last week in a suicide bombing in the Baghdad suburb of Sadr City – an attack IS claimed it had carried out.
The move will also set out a more precise timeline for American forces to formally step back in their fight against the so-called Islamic State in Iraq.
