"We are worried that the attacks on Sunni and Shia mosques aim at reigniting the sectarian strife in this country,"


Al Qaeda's Syrian and Iraqi branches merged earlier this year to form the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which has claimed responsibility for attacks on both sides of the border.

Iraq has also witnessed several incidents in recent weeks suggesting that Shi'ite militias, which have so far refrained from retaliating to attacks by Sunni insurgents, may once again be resorting to violence.

Intensifying violence has raised concerns of a return to wider conflict in a country where Shi'ite Muslims, Sunnis and ethnic Kurds have yet to find a stable way of sharing power.


 The ambush took place on Wednesday in the Wurduj district of Badakshan province. The Taliban claimed responsibility after the attack.
