More than 20 foreign insurgents, some wearing suicide vests, were killed by American and Iraqi forces during raids in an area insurgents were using to stage attacks in Baghdad, the US military said Sunday. The raids have taken place in and around Youssifiyah, a town about 20 kilometers south of Baghdad, where an American helicopter apparently was shot down by insurgents nearly a month ago, killing the two soldiers aboard. In the latest operations Saturday, US and Iraqi forces attacked areas being used by foreign insurgent groups such as al-Qaida in Iraq, and captured seven terrorists and detained more than 50 suspected ones, the US command said.
