BAGHDAD, Iraq - Masked gunmen killed three Sunni Arabs in front of horrified witnesses outside a mosque in Mosul on Friday, after grabbing them as they hung posters urging fellow Sunnis to vote in a referendum on the new constitution.

The three members of Iraq's largest Sunni Arab political group, the Iraqi Islamic Party, were seized in a Mosul neighborhood where they were promoting voter registration for the Oct. 15 referendum on the new constitution, said party official Nouredine al-Hayali.

They were driven to another neighborhood, shoved against a wall near the Dhi al-Nourein mosque and shot dead while more masked gunmen blocked off a major street, witnesses said. The gunmen then fled in three cars, leaving the bodies behind.

It was the second armed attack in as many days against Sunni Arabs participating in the U.S.-backed political process, despite threats from insurgents and al-Qaida's wing in Iraq.


its a sad day for Democracy in Iraq. 3 more dead. looks like the terrorists are now targeting the Sunnis who want to join the new government. i guess the terrorists cant win the hearts and minds of these men so they killed them. they could have at least try to persuade them.

Well they are trying to. So they kill those poor folks and then use the incident to "Persuade" others.

Pretty old school terror tactic.
