American troops call in help from their British allies

U.S. troops called in help from their British allies Tuesday as a Royal Air Force plane bombed a building south of Baghdad, killing six insurgents.

A U.S. statement said the GR-4 Tornado jet was summoned after insurgents fled into a building following an attack on an Iraqi police station and checkpoint in Salman Pak. Four Iraqi vehicles were destroyed.

After the insurgents took shelter in the building, the British jet destroyed the target with a 2,000-pound bomb, the statement added.

Two U.S. OH-58D helicopters also joined the fight, engaging about 30 insurgents with rocket and machine gun fire, the U.S. said.
