Baghdad brothel shooting: 12 people die in shooting

In sad news today, a Baghdad brothel shooting has left 12 people dead. On Jan. 7, Yahoo reported that gunmen killed 12 people today which included seven women and five men. This happened at a working brothel. It was at an apartment in the Zayouna area.

This working brothel had a similar shooting back in May of 2013. This shooting also left 12 people dead so it is odd that the same amount were killed this time. Violence in Iraq is reaching an all-time high lately. It was only Jan. 5 when as many people were dead as died last year in the entire month of January. Seven people were actually killed today as well in another shooting. This one was at a police checkpoint. Hopefully they will find a way to get things under control soon.

Are you shocked by the Baghdad brothel shooting? Do you think it had anything to do with sex or was just a random shooting? Sound off in the comments below on your thoughts.
