Five teachers shot dead in Iraq

Five Iraqi teachers were abducted in front of their pupils and executed at a primary school south of Baghdad today.

The shooting happened as teachers and students were leaving the building at the end of the school day in Muelha, a village near the town of Iskandariyah. Contrary to earlier reports that children had been forced to watch the murders, no-one else was in the classroom at the time of the shooting, said police Captain 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 km (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 Times reports.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
