BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say gunmen killed an imam and two others outside a sweets shop in the Iraqi city of Fallujah.
A police officer said the assailants gunned down the preacher, Sheik Talib Zuwayid of the al-Baraa mosque, along with his nephew and another man during the Sunday attack. A health official confirmed the deaths and said another man was injured.
Residents said Zuwayid was one of the organizers of weekly Sunni demonstrations against the Shiite-led government that have been taking place for the past three months. The police officer however said it was unclear if the killings were related to the protests.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release information.
