Gunmen kill at least 32 in attack on Iraq Sunni mosque

Shiite militiamen gunned down 70 people at a Sunni mosque in the Hamreen area northeast of Baghdad on Friday, Iraqi officers and doctors said.

The attack on the mosque in Diyala province, which also wounded 20 people, was apparently carried out in revenge for the killing of militiamen in either clashes or a roadside bombing in the area.
