US air strikes killed at least 25 Iranian-linked Shi'ite militia fighters after a fierce firefight Friday north of Baghdad, the military said. Local officials said the dead included seven children and the attack hit men protecting their homes. The military said separately that it was investigating the deaths of three civilians who were shot by American troops near a checkpoint south of the capital that was set up by Iraqis who have joined forces against extremists. Iraqi officials said the men were US-sanctioned guards on a remote road and mistakenly killed by American soldiers who fired from a watch tower at a base near the shooting.
