American forces conducted several raids in and around Baghdad on Friday, killing two insurgents and wounding an Iraqi woman the militants were using as a "human shield," the US command said. In the capital, sectarian violence killed at least six Iraqis and wounded 39 on the Muslim day of worship, police said, and a Sunni-Arab mosque was attacked by men armed with rocket-propelled grenades. Meanwhile, there was no sign that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was having any luck stopping a widening revolt within his divided government.
