US troops kill Iraqi civilian in Baghdad
font size    

US troops opened fire at a civilian car on the Baghdad airport road on Sunday, killing the driver and wounding his wife, police said.

"The US troops opened fire at a suspected civilian car on the main road leading to Baghdad International Airport, killing the driver and seriously wounding his wife," Captain Ahmed Abdullah from Baghdad police told Xinhua.

The airport road is the most dangerous since insurgents frequently attack US and Iraqi security forces travelling on the road in western Baghdad.

In a separate incident, unknown gunmen kidnapped a cleric of a Sunni mosque southwest of the capital, an Interior Ministry source said.

"Armed men kidnapped Sheikh Muhammed al-Azzawi, cleric of al- Salam mosque in southwestern Baghdad at about 2:30 p.m. (1130 GMT) as he left his home heading to the mosque," the source told Xinhua.
