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. Meanwhile, troops came under fire and reacted in "self-defense," the statement said - killing five Iraqis and wounding four others.
