Bomb explodes at funeral procession in Gaza; 2 people killed

Two people were killed and at least 30 injured, when a bomb exploded at a funeral procession in Gaza city.

Witnesses said gunmen were firing in the air during the funeral of a Palestinian Fatah militant, who was killed Thursday in an Israeli airstrike. Then, a powerful explosion went off. The source of the blast was unknown and it was unclear if the device was triggered or set off accidentally, the AP reports.

At a nearby hospital, women wailed looking for their relatives as medics tended to the wounded.

Hamas security officials said a participant in the funeral lobbed a pipebomb at the edges of the procession, but the bomb bounced back into the procession, causing the mayhem.

Gunfire and the setting off of fireworks are common forms of commemoration at Gaza funerals.

The procession was organized by Fatah militants affiliated with the dead men killed Thursday when Israeli aircraft fire killed him and two others. The army said the men belonged to a Palestinian cell that had fired rockets at Israel .
