Officials in Samarra say the blast went off around midday, during Friday prayers. At least eight people were wounded in the attack.
Samarra is a largely Sunni Muslim city that is home to a revered Shiite shrine. It is 95 kilometres (60 miles) north of the Iraqi capital.
Iraq is weathering its worst bout of violence in half a decade. The killing has risen significantly since April, with more than 4,000 killed since the start of that month.
