Four Iraqis killed in attack on police station as Shiites reach deal regarding constitution
Iraqi fighters in a car fired rocket-propelled grenades at a police station in northern Iraq on Sunday, killing four Iraqi civilians, police and witnesses said.
According to The AP, two Iraqi police officers were injured in the attack in Mosul.
Police Lt. Khalid Fadh Il said the attack on the al-Sukar station was launched from a passing car at about 8 a.m. Officers fired back, the report added.
Meanwhile, a prominent member of Iraq Governing Council said Sunday that a deal had been reached on the country's interim constitution after talks with Iraq's top Shiite leader and the document would be signed on Monday.
"There will be very good news very soon, the signing will take place Monday," Governing Council member Muwaffaq al-Rubaie told reporters after a brief meeting with Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani. (Albawaba.com)
