'Iraq Church Gunmen in Mercenary Uniforms'

An Iraqi official has revealed that the gunmen involved in the country's recent church drama could have been members of foreign security companies.

Qassem Atta, the spokesman for the Baghdad Operations Command, said on Monday that the assailants that stormed Baghdad's Sayidat al-Nejat Catholic Church were wearing uniforms used by foreign security companies.

On Sunday, a group of armed men took dozens of worshippers hostage in the church. The incident lasted nearly four hours until the police intervened. The Iraqi interior ministry later said 52 people were killed and more than 60 were injured in the incident.'
