Shi'ite militants and police enraged by deadly truck bombings went on a shooting rampage against Sunnis in a northwestern Iraqi city, killing as many as 70 men execution-style and prompting fears that sectarian violence was spreading outside the capital. The killings occurred Wednesday in the mixed Shiite-Sunni city of Tal Afar, which had been an insurgent stronghold until an offensive by US and Iraqi troops in September 2005, when militants fled into the countryside without a fight. Last March, US President George W. Bush cited the operation as an example that gave him "confidence in our strategy."
