Iraq's government clamped a state of emergency on Baghdad and ordered everyone off the streets on Friday after US and Iraqi forces battled insurgents armed with rocket-propelled grenades, hand grenades and rifles near the heavily fortified Green Zone. The military announced the deaths of five more US troops in a deadly week for American forces that included the discovery of the brutalized bodies of two kidnapped soldiers. Iraqi and US military forces clashed with heavily armed attackers throughout the morning Friday in the alleys and doorways along Haifa Street and within earshot of the Green Zone, which houses the US and British embassies and Iraqi government headquarters.
