"They were coming in a big bus with children and women. The attackers freed the women and children and shot dead the men, execution-style," said interior ministry spokesman Brigadier General Abdul Karim Khalaf.
The attack was the latest in a wave of sectarian violence that many believe is nothing less than a civil war.
