(Associated Press) – Militants bombed two churches Tuesday in Mosul , wounding three people in a coordinated attack apparently aimed at stirring trouble between religious groups in this ethnically diverse northern city. Deputy provincial governor Khasro Gouran said one blast struck a church about 2:30 p.m. in eastern Mosul ‘s Wihda neighborhood, wounding three people. An hour later, gunmen stormed a church in western Mosul , ordering a handful of people outside before bombing it, Gouran said. There were no casualties. Islamic militants have regularly targeted different sectors of Iraq ‘s multiethnic population, including the minority Christians, in a bid to disrupt the U.S.-led reconstruction of the war-scarred country.
