font size    

Unknown gunmen shot dead four worshippers and wounded 14 others in a pre-dawn attack on Thursday at a Sunni mosque in a town near Tikrit, some 170 km north of Baghdad, a local police source said.

"Masked armed men driving three cars stormed the Imam Muslim mosque in the al-Alam town, some 10 km north of Tikrit, during the Muslim dawn prayer, killing four of them and wounding 14 others," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Violence has mounted as a power vacuum has continued despite the formation of a new unity government in the war-torn country.
