Iraqi officials say at least 11 policemen and seven members of a US-backed Sunni group have been killed in an ambush northeast of Baghdad. The head of the Diyala provincial council Ibrahim Bajilan says gunmen opened fire on a group of Iraqi policemen and members of a US-allied Sunni group near Khan Bani Saad. He says 11 policemen and seven members of the so-called awakening council were killed. The information was confirmed by a police officer in the provincial military operations center in nearby Baqouba, Diyala's capital.
