BAGHDAD — Police say gunmen have killed four people, including a Sunni cleric, in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul where insurgents remain active.

A Mosul police official said a policeman and two civilians were killed Thursday when gunmen in a speeding car opened fire on a police checkpoint in the city. Earlier, police said Fathi al-Nuaimi, a Sunni imam, was shot dead by gunmen in a drive-by attack near his home.

Mosul remains a stronghold of al-Qaida, even as security has dramatically improved elsewhere in the country.
