Police say gunmen kill Sunni politician in northern Iraq

Police say gunmen killed a member of a Sunni political party in northern Iraq as he was standing outside his house. The Iraqi Islamic Party has issued a statement condemning the killing of Abdul-Bari Ibrahim in a village near Tal Afar, 260 miles northwest of Baghdad. The party is led by Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi. The police spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
