9 are killed as protesters, army clash
At least seven protesters and two soldiers were killed Friday in clashes that started after Iraqi army forces opened fire on demonstrators who had pelted them with rocks on the outskirts of Fallujah, west of Baghdad, officials said. It was the first deadly confrontation in more than a month of antigovernment protests by mostly Sunni opponents of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite. A security official said one clash started when protesters began throwing rocks at government forces at a checkpoint. The forces opened fire, and demonstrators responded by burning army vehicles and the cars of two politicians. Seven civilians were killed and 44 people were wounded, according to medical sources. Later, unidentified gunmen killed two soldiers and wounded one at an army checkpoint south of Fallujah, in apparent retaliation, and gunmen kidnapped three soldiers, a police official said.
