US troops killed five suspects and detained 30 others Wednesday in a raid northeast of Fallujah, the military said.
American forces raided a group of buildings suspected of being used by militants, and found explosives inside one of them, the military said in a statement. A helicopter was called in, and dropped precision-guided bombs on the cluster of buildings, it said.
