Large Sunni mosque destroyed near Basra



From correspondents in Basra

June 15, 2007 07:03pm

A REVERED Sunni mosque was destroyed in a bomb attack near the southern Shiite city of Basra today by a group pretending they wanted to film the shrine, an Iraqi army officer said.

"A group of people carrying a camera arrived at the Talha bin Zubair mosque," said Major General Ali Mussawi, head of a government formed security committee for the province.

"They said they wanted to film the mosque. But they went after planting bombs around it."

He said there were two explosions within minutes of each other that destroyed the two domes and a minaret on the mosque which is located near the town of Zubair, west of Basra.

"The mosque is completely destroyed," Maj-Gen Mussawi said, adding that the mosque security guards had been detained and the site surrounded by troops.

Several Sunni mosques have been attacked or bombed in tit-for-tat violence since Wednesday's bombing of the Shiite Al-Askari shrine in the northern town of Samarra.

The Samarra shrine was first attacked on February 22, 2006, which triggered brutal nationwide Shiite and Sunni clashes in Iraq that continue to this day.
