Gunmen storm Baghdad church and kill guards

66080473-series-blasts.jpg(AKnews) - Four unidentified gunmen stormed a church in the Mansour district, western Baghdad,

today killing three security guards, said a security source.

The church's fourth guard was able to escape the assault.

The gunmen fled after the attack.

Al-Qaeda announced previously its responsibility for storming the Sayyida al-Najat church on October 31 last year and detaining a number of hostages in the incident. Ten of civilians were killed in the attack.
