At least 10 killed in Iraq Sunday
At least 10 people were killed in Iraq on Sunday in attacks south of Baghdad and in the northern provinces, according to Agence France Presse.
In Latifyah, six Sunni Arabs were killed by unidentified militants, said AFP's security and medical sources. Some say that the six were stabbed to death, while others are suggesting that they were shot.
In Kirkuk, Nineveh and Salaheddin, four others were reported dead in separate militant attacks.
More than 2,400 people have died in Iraq this year alone from widespread sectarian violence that has largely been perpetuated by tension between the Shiite-ruled government and the Sunni minority that has been allegedly marginalized and mistreated under the current government's rule.
A new round of tentative parliamentary elections is set to take place at the end of this month.
