Iraqi soldiers clashed with gunmen Sunday in a Sunni neighborhood of Baghdad after attackers fired nine rockets, some of which landed near the country's most revered Sunni shrine, witnesses said. The rockets landed near the Grand Imam Abu Hanifa mosque in the northern neighborhood of Azamiyah at about 3:30 p.m. Three people were wounded, Saif al-Janabi, the director of the local hospital said. Nobody claimed responsibility for the attack, but it occurred amid rising ethnic and sectarian tensions in the capital. Heavy exchanges of automatic weapons fire erupted and continued early in the evening.
