Families in this dusty village near the Iraqi border buried loved ones Monday who they said were killed when the US military launched a rare attack in Syrian territory. During the funeral procession, a crowd of angry residents shouted anti-American slogans and carried banners reading: "Down with Bush and the American enemy." Syrian foreign minister, Walid al-Moallem, said Monday in London that the US raid was an act of "criminal and terrorist aggression." The Syrian government said four US military helicopters attacked a civilian building under construction shortly before sundown Sunday in Sukkariyeh, about five miles inside the Syrian border. The government statement said eight people were killed, including a man and his four children and a woman. However, local officials said seven men were killed and two other people were wounded, including a woman among the injured.
