BAGHDAD (AP) — Seven worshippers are dead after a bomb attack outside a Sunni mosque in Iraq.

The attack came as Sunnis continue to hold demonstrations in Iraq to protest what they say is second-class treatment by the government, led by Shiites.

Sunni mosques have been targeted in several recent attacks. There's rising sectarian tension in Iraq after a deadly crackdown by security forces on a Sunni protest site last month. Since then, violence has been on the upswing.
