A police officer said today that gunmen first opened fire on the two houses late yesterday in the largely Sunni town of Latifiyah and then planted bombs around them. He said that five children, three women and three men were killed.
Last Wednesday, gunmen shot dead a seven-member Shiite family in the same town, about 20 miles south of Baghdad.
The killings raise yesterday's death toll in shootings and bombings across the country to at least 78 people killed.
A medical official confirmed the casuality figure.
