BAGHDAD - Seven worshipers were killed and a dozen more wounded when mortar rounds targeted a Sunni Muslim mosque during Friday prayers in Iraq's Diyala province, police said.

The attack was the latest in the build up to Saturday's provincial election that will be a key test of Iraq's political stability more than a year after the last US troops withdrew.
