U.S. Troops Kill 5 Girls in Assault on Insurgents
BAGHDAD, Nov. 28 — American troops killed five girls, including at least one baby, and what the military described as either a boy or a man, when the troops attacked a house Tuesday in volatile Anbar Province after they suspected insurgents of firing at them from the roof.
Another person, which the military described in a written statement as either a girl or a young woman, was wounded in the attack and refused treatment by the Americans.
