Iraqi judicial investigator, policeman killed north of Baghdad

English.news.cn   2012-09-05 23:44:54            

TIKRIT, Iraq, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- An Iraqi female judicial investigator and a policeman were shot dead by gunmen in the province of Salahudin north of Baghdad on Wednesday, a provincial police source said.

Two armed men on their motorcycle gunned down Amal Ahmad, a female judicial investigator, and a policeman while they were leaving a court building in the city of Tuz-Khurmato, some 90 km east of Salahudin's provincial capital of Tikrit, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The incident is under investigation as the police believe that al-Qaida militants were responsible for the attack.

On July 22, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the top leader of the self- styled Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), al-Qaida front in the country, launched a plan dubbed "Breaking the walls" aimed at releasing al- Qaida prisoners and targeting the country's judges and investigators, as well as returning to the previous al-Qaida strongholds that were lost after rifts with the then anti-U.S. Sunni militant groups.

Salahudin province is a Sunni-dominated province. Its capital city of Tikrit, some 170 km north of Baghdad, is the hometown of the former President Saddam Hussein.
