Disguised as policemen insurgents killed five teachers in Baghdad

Suspected insurgents disguised as policemen shot and killed five teachers in a classroom of an elementary school south of Baghdad on Monday, police said.

The shooting occurred just as teachers and students were leaving the building at the end of the school day in Muelha, a village near the town of Iskandariyah, and no one else was in the classroom at the time of the shooting, said police Capt. Muthana Khaled.

The five male teachers were kidnapped as they were leaving the school in a minibus, along with their driver, Khalied said. All six men were then taken back into the classroom, lined up against a wall and shot to death by the gunmen, he said.

Muelha, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Baghdad, is located in a predominantly Sunni area of Iraq, but the identities of the people killed were not immediately known, the AP reports.

Iraq's Sunni-led insurgency against U.S. forces in Iraq sometimes causes revenge killings by the country's majority Shiite population.
