Iraqi army troops and US advisers killed at least two suspected insurgents and captured another 12 in an early morning raid Monday on two Baghdad homes, the US command said. The troops came under rocket propelled grenade fire on their way to the first residence in southwestern Baghdad, but took no damage. When they entered the home they found 11 Iraqi men inside, one of whom took aim at them with an AK-47 assault rifle and was killed, the US military said in a statement. As they prepared to bring the others out, the troops came under continuous fire from several locations in the home. "Iraqi forces responded to these threats with well-aimed fire at clearly identified targets, several of which were neutralized," the military said.
