US forces kill 8, capture 41 in Iraq

Eight suspected insurgents are killed and 41 others are captured in the U.S. forces’ raid across Iraq, the military said.

Seven suspects were killed after they fired on American troops entering a building near Mahmoudiyah, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of Baghdad, the U.S. military said in a statement. Another 15 men were detained.

In two more raids in the same city, U.S. forces detained eight suspects and destroyed seven tanks of chlorine, the statement said. Chlorine has been used in car bombs in recent months by Sunni insurgents, mostly in Iraq's western Anbar province.

In Baghdad, one suspect was killed when U.S. troops entered a building to disrupt a car bomb-making cell, the military said. Six suspects were detained in the raid, and troops uncovered explosives, it said.

Two more suspects were also captured in another raid in Baghdad, the statement said.

In Mosul, 360 kilometers (225 miles) northwest of Baghdad, ten suspects were detained in two separate raids targeting al-Qaida members, it added.
