Gunmen attacked a vehicle on Tuesday that was carrying employees of a government agency that cares for Shi'ite mosques in Iraq, killing 13 of them and wounding eight, the organization said. The gunmen, traveling in one car, carried out the attack by intercepting the Shi'ite Endowment minibus in northern Baghdad on Tuesday morning as it was carrying the employees to work in the capital, said Salah Abdel-Razaq, an Endowment spokesman. Three other people on the vehicle apparently escaped injury, he said. A similar attack occurred late last month in southern Iraq against the Sunni Endowment, the government agency that cares for Sunni-Arab mosques in Iraq.
