Eleven people, including women and children, were killed Sunday after US forces came under attack by gunfire and a suicide bomber during a raid in Mosul, the military said. There were no casualties among American forces. Five "terrorists" as well as three women and three children were killed, according to the statement. It did not specify how the people died, nor reported their nationalities. Elsewhere in the northern city, gunmen opened fire on mourners in a funeral tent, killing four people and wounding three others, according to Iraqi officials. Violence has declined drastically throughout Iraq, but Mosul remains a major security challenge despite recent US-Iraqi military operations aimed at routing al-Qaida in Iraq and other Sunni insurgents from the city.
