Assailants wearing Iraqi army uniforms killed four members of the Sahwa movement on Monday (August 15th), wire agencies reported.
The gunmen allegedly entered a mosque in south Baghdad following evening prayers, where they then called out the names of the four men, said Qasim al-Hamdani, a former member of Sahwa.
Once they were identified, the victims were dragged outside and shot.
Both al-Hamdani and Interior Ministry officials blamed the Islamic State of Iraq, an al-Qaeda front group, for the attack. The gunmen left a note next to the bodies claiming that the attackers were members of the affiliate, according to the Guardian.
