US troops hunting for a suspected al-Qaida in Iraq militant raided a house Friday and killed seven people, including three women, drawing an angry protest from Iraqi officials that all the victims were civilians. The US military said the raid in Adwar - a Sunni town 115 kilometers north of Baghdad and just south of Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit - targeted an extremist responsible for suicide attacks and roadside bombings. Neighbors and Iraqi officials claimed all the dead were from a poor family that had been uprooted by sectarian violence and had no links to the insurgency. Iraq's government demanded that those responsible for the raid be punished.
