Gunmen raid homes, kill 6 people in northern Iraq

The attacks came two days after a relentless assault across Iraq killed at least 93 people and wounded many more.



Baghdad: Iraqi officials say gunmen have raided two family homes in a northern Iraqi city, killing six people.

Provincial police officials say the raids took place on Saturday in the city of Mosul.

In the first attack, four people were killed, including a husband and wife. In the second house, gunmen killed two men.

Local authorities say they are investigating the two attacks. Mosul was once an al Qaeda stronghold. It is about 360 kilometres north of Baghdad.

The attacks came two days after a relentless assault across the country killed at least 93 people and wounded many more in what was the second deadliest day in Iraq since US troops left in December.
