We dont even have to bomb thier mosques they are doing it themselves!


BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Two bombs exploded Monday evening outside a Sunni mosque in Baghdad, killing four people in a continuation of the sectarian attacks that have come since a bomb destroyed a Shiite shrine in Samarra last week.

At least 18 people were wounded in the blasts, which occurred in a mostly Shiite neighborhood, Baghdad emergency police told CNN.

In the Nahrawan area southeast of Baghdad, Iraqi police clashed with insurgents attempting to occupy a police station Monday afternoon, authorities said.

Two police commandos were killed and five others were wounded in the fighting. Another commando is missing, police said.

Police called for support from the U.S. military, and said the insurgents fled when troops showed up, ending the three-hour skirmish.

Monday morning, a mortar attack targeted a gas station and a high school for girls in the northwestern neighborhood of Shulla.

Four people were killed and 17 others were wounded, Iraqi police said.

Earlier Monday, authorities lifted a daylight curfew enacted after mass demonstrations were followed by violence last week.

The violence -- much of it sectarian -- has killed more than 200 people since the bombing of the gold-domed al-Askariya Mosque on Wednesday.
