Controversy continues over a U-S attack in western Iraq
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Baghdad, Iraq-AP -- The U-S is standing by its claim that a site attacked by U-S forces in the western Iraqi desert was a safehouse for foreign fighters.

Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt tells The Associated Press the coalition sent a ground force into the area near the Syrian border. He says the troops were shot at, but then shot back. He acknowledges there were casualties in the engagement, although he didn't say how many.

Kimmitt also says that coalition forces recovered many weapons, satellite communications devices and foreign passports in the operation. He says the coalition took "obligatory actions" to "ensure that the people of Iraq stay safe."

But Iraqis still insist U-S troops attacked a wedding party. They're disputing the claims about foreign fighters.
