Gunmen kill eight people in Iraq bus attack
BAQUBA, Iraq Nov 30 (Reuters) - Gunmen opened fire on a minibus
north of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing eight people and wounding two, police
said.
A police official said 10 masked gunmen carried out the attack near
the town of Baquba, some 65 km (40 miles) from the Iraqi capital.
Iraqi and U.S. officials expect a surge in guerrilla violence in the
run-up to national elections on Dec. 15 when Iraqis will vote for their
first full-term government since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.
Sunni Arab guerrillas are waging a campaign of suicide bombings,
shootings and assassinations in a bid to topple the present Shi'ite- and
Kurd-dominated government, which is backed by Washington.
