US troops on Tuesday patrolled a city north of Baghdad where a surge in sectarian fighting has killed close to 100 people, while bombings and shootings across Iraq killed at least 32 others. The fighting in Balad, a town near a major US air base an hour's drive north of the capital, began Friday with the slaying of 17 Shi'ite Muslim workers. Revenge-seeking Shi'ite death squads then killed 74 Sunnis, causing people to flee across the Tigris River to the nearby Sunni-dominated city of Duluiyah.
