Gunmen kill three women in Iraqi holy city
NAJAF, Iraq, July 3 (Reuters) A group of gunmen killed two women and a teenage girl today when they stormed a house allegedly used as a brothel in the Shi'ite holy city of Najaf, local security sources said.
The house had received three warnings from unknown gunmen to stop its activities, the sources said.
Residents in Najaf, 160 km (100 miles) south of Baghdad, say militia groups have often threatened people selling alcohol or drugs in the city in a bid to impose strict Islamic order.
