Intruders kill Iraqi family with knives
by UPI

BAGHDAD - A group of knife-wielding intruders killed a former Iraqi official and three of his family members Sunday in northeast Baghdad, an official said.

An Interior Ministry official told CNN Ahmen Ali, who worked as a Baghdad city official during the reign of late Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, was killed in his home along with his wife, daughter and son.

No motive was given for the deadly home invasion.

The official said that in the southeast portion of the Iraqi capital Sunday, five women were kidnapped while traveling to a local language college.

The unidentified ministry official also told CNN that in Baghdad's Qahira district, three civilians and two Iraqi soldiers were wounded when a bomb exploded Sunday morning.

The roadside bomb detonated just outside a mosque in the northeast Baghdad district, the official said.
