Clashes have broken out in Iraq after Iraqi national guardsmen raided a Sunni mosque in Baghdad's Adhamiya neighbourhood after weekly Friday prayers.

Eyewitnesses say at least two Iraqis were hurt in the clashes inside the Abu Hanifa mosque, which is considered one of the most important Sunni places of worship in Iraq.

Around 300 national guardsmen are reported to have stormed the mosque.

The purpose of the raid is not immediately clear.

300 guardsmen for one mosque? That's a large raid if true.
