( dpa ) - At least six members of an Iraqi family were killed in the city of Baquba, some 60 kilometres north of the capital Baghdad, reports said Wednesday.

The independent Iraqi news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI) said suspected members of the al-Qaeda terrorist network attacked the house in the Behrez area, south of Baquba.

They kidnapped the Iraqi civilian and five other members of his family. Security sources later found their corpses in a nearby district, VOI said.
