MOSUL, Iraq - At least 10 people were wounded on Monday in clashes between Iraqi security forces and people protesting in the northern city of Mosul against the US troop presence in the country, a medic and witnesses said.

The fighting erupted when security forces used water cannon and fired shots in the air to prevent around 3,000 protesters from reaching the city's main square, the witnesses said.Rallies in the square have been growing since April 9, with demonstrators protesting against any extension of the US troop presence in Iraq beyond the end of the year.

"We received 10 wounded people, including some policemen. Their injuries were caused by batons and stones," said a medical source at Mosul hospital, who declined to be named.
