Ansar al-Sunna, strikes back

"MOSUL (Reuters) - A mortar and rocket attack on a U.S. military base in the Iraqi city of Mosul killed at least 22 people and wounded more than 50 on Tuesday in one of the most deadly attacks on U.S. forces since last year's invasion.

The Mosul attack came as British Prime Minister Tony Blair made a surprise visit to Baghdad where he vowed that the war against insurgents would be won and that elections scheduled for Jan. 30 would happen on time despite an upsurge in bloodshed.

Iraqi militant group Ansar al-Sunna, a major player in the insurgency against the U.S.-backed government and U.S. forces, said it was behind the attack."
