Two mortar shells slammed into a coffee shop in a Shiite neighborhood Tuesday in Baghdad, killing at least 14 people and wounding 16 others, police said.

The attack appeared to have been in response to mortar fire on a Sunni neighborhood across the Tigris River earlier Tuesday that killed seven people and wounded 25.
