Six wounded as bomb targets Shi'ite mosque in Iraq

A Shi'ite mosque comes under attack in southern Iraq, when a bomb explodes during a service -- wounding six people. No one is claiming responsibility for the attack, but Sunni Muslim insurgents have stepped up efforts to undermine Iraq's Shi'ite-led government. The bomb exploded in the usually stable oil hub of Basra. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) EYEWITNESS MAZIN MOHAMMED, SAYING: "Six worshippers were wounded by the blast. Some of the injuries are minor, while others were serious. Thank God all the wounded were taken to hospital." The attack comes a day after a series of car bombs hit five Shi'ite mosques across Iraq that killed 19 people.
