Iraqi officials say gunmen have raided two family homes in a northern Iraqi city, killing six people. Provincial police officials say the raids took place Saturday in the city of Mosul. In the first attack, four people were killed, including a husband and wife. In the second house, gunmen killed two men.
Local authorities say they are investigating the two attacks. Mosul was once an al-Qeada stronghold. It is about 360 kilometers (225 miles) north of Baghdad.
