Bomb Hits Sunni Mosque In Iraq
13 July 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Iraqi police say that a bomb exploded at a Sunni mosque in eastern Iraq, killing two people and wounding 16.
Police said a suicide bomber might have been inside the mosque preparing for an attack when the explosives detonated prematurely.
Sunni insurgents have mounted several bombings in or near Shi'ite mosques in a campaign designed to topple Iraq's new Shi'ite-led government.
