(MENAFN - Arab News) Iraqi officials say gunmen wearing military uniforms have killed seven anti-Al-Qaeda militiamen in an attack in a town north of Baghdad.

Police officials say gunmen asked a local anti-Al-Qaeda militia leader in Tuz Khormato to accompany them to a checkpoint manned by a pro-government group, known as Sahwa, for questioning early yesterday.

After reaching at the checkpoint, the gunmen overpowered the leader and his men and then executed them.

Medics in nearby hospital confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to brief reporters

Sahwa militiamen joined forces with US troops to fight Al-Qaeda during the Iraq war. Ever since then, the group has been a target for Sunni insurgents who consider its members traitors.
