Gunmen using silenced weapons have attacked a row of alcohol shops in Baghdad, leaving 10 people dead, officials say.
The attackers arrived in four vehicles and restrained policemen at a checkpoint in the eastern district of Zayouna, where the stores are located.
They reportedly struck when the shops were at their busiest, as commuters on their way home stopped to buy drinks.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
All of the dead and four left critically wounded were Christians working in the shops. The gunmen allowed customers to leave unharmed.
Police were quoted as saying the shops had been rebuilt after they were targeted in bomb attacks last year.

"If they say the state is Islamic, then we will leave this job and go to another," Khidr said.....
