US soldiers killed 26 people before dawn Saturday in Baghdad's Sadr City neighborhood, the military said. The US military said the victims were terrorists who attacked American troops with small arms fire, rocket-propelled grenades and roadside bombs. But Iraqi police and hospital officials said all the dead were civilians, killed in their homes. The Iraqi officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity out of security concerns, put the death toll at eight, with 20 wounded.
