At least 19 killed in attack on Iraq town

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Gunmen raided a small town near Baghdad and shot dead at least 19 people in what police said on Friday was a sectarian attack by Sunnis on Shi'ites, latest in a string of killings since a Shi'ite shrine was bombed last week.

Among the dead were Shi'ite migrant laborers shot down at a brick factory in a dusk raid on Thursday by a suspected al Qaeda-linked group. One local politician said at least 25 died, among them three children.
