Rebels Strike Iraqi Forces After Bin Laden CallBy Aimer al-Aimery
TIKRIT, Iraq (Reuters) - Insurgents overran a police post near Saddam Hussein home town on Tuesday, hauled 12 men outside and shot them in a dramatic show of force, a day after Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) declared holy war on the U.S.-backed election. The dawn massacre in Tikrit, where the guerrillas also blew up the police station, was the bloodiest in a spate of attacks in Iraq (news - web sites)'s Sunni minority heartlands north of Baghdad; at least five other policemen were killed and several National Guards. The timing of the attacks and broadcast of the al Qaeda leader's audiotape seemed coincidental but together they racked up the pressure on Iraqi voters to stay at home on Jan. 30 and seemed aimed to instil fear in Iraq's new security forces. Both have grave implications for U.S. prospects in Iraq.
EXECUTION-STYLE KILLINGS Hours after the purported bin Laden audiotape was broadcast on Al Jazeera television, calling anyone who voted an "infidel," gunmen swarmed over the Mukashifa police compound, just south of Tikrit, after dawn, police and a U.S. military spokesman said. Rounding up the dozen officers in the compound, they shot them execution-style, gunning down one who tried to flee, a police source told Reuters. They then blew up the station. Five other policemen were killed in four other attacks south of Tikrit around the same time. At Baquba, northeast of Baghdad, a suicide car bomber killed five people and wounded 22, most of them National Guards attending the scene of an earlier bomb.
Is Osama still alive? Not everyone thinks so.
