Authorities slapped an indefinite curfew on a town south of Baghdad after two people were killed and two others wounded Monday in clashes that followed an attack by suspected Shi'ite militants on a Sunni mosque, police said. Iraqi and US forces sealed off the area where the mosque is located, but clashes erupted elsewhere in Iskandariyah, a mixed Shi'ite-Sunni town 50 kilometers south of Baghdad. The mosque was slightly damaged by two rocket propelled grenades fired by the assailants.
