Iraq: Al Maliki Censures US Forces After Raid Kills 26


AL MALIKI CENSURES US FORCES AFTER SADR CITY RAID KILLS 26

Baghdad: Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki condemned a US raid yesterday in Baghdad's Shiite Sadr City slum - a politically sensitive district for him - in which American troops searching for Iranian-linked militants sparked a firefight that left 26 Iraqis dead.

The US military said all those killed in the fighting were gunmen.

But residents said eight civilians were killed in their homes and angrily accused American troops of firing wildly during the pre-dawn assault.
