Women react near empty coffins as they wait to claim the bodies of their relatives, who were killed by gunmen, outside a hospital morgue in Mahmudiya,  south of Baghdad on September 4, 2013. Gunmen shot dead 16 members of the same Shi’ite family before blowing up their two neighbouring homes south of the Iraqi capital overnight, police and medics said. The dead included six children and eight women.
More than 800 people were killed in Iraq in violence throughout August, the UN said Sunday. The report says a total of about 5,000 people were killed since the start of 2013.
