BAGHDAD - Iraq's ethnically and religiously mixed city of Mosul imposed a curfew on vehicles in Christian neighbourhoods yesterday in response to a series of bomb attacks, police said.
The curfew in the northern city, home to many of Iraq's estimated 750000 Christians, a small minority in a mainly Muslim country of 28 million people, was later lifted and officials vowed to protect civilians from violence. The bombs exploded in apparently coordinated attacks on Sunday, wounding more than 30 people. In the most serious attack, four people were killed and 21 wounded. - Reuters
