Iraq: Gunmen kill 10 in attack on Shi'ite homes

December 10, 2006 12:54

Gunmen attacked two Shi'ite homes in western Baghdad, killing 10 people, police said Sunday. No one claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred at about 11 p.m. Saturday in the mostly Sunni Arab al-Jihad neighborhood, two policemen said, but it appeared to have been conducted by Sunni Arabs in retaliation for earlier attacks on Sunnis in the capital. The policemen spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern for their own safety. Baghdad has been suffering from a series of attacks aimed at driving Sunnis or Shi'ites out of neighborhoods of the capital where they form a minority.
