Several killed after infiltrating Iraq from Syria: coalition

Several people were killed by US troops after infiltrating Iraq from Syria and shooting at a US helicopter, forcing it to land but causing no US casualties. “Soldiers engaged a small number of people who infiltrated from the border,” a coalition spokesman said Wednesday. “Some were killed, others detained,” he said, adding that small arms and rocket-propelled grenades were seized. During the operation, a OH-58 reconnaissance helicopter took small arms fire which damaged a hydraulic pump forcing the pilot to land, the spokesman said.
