A US airstrike killed eight suspected terrorists and destroyed a building south of Baghdad, the US military said Friday. The attack occurred Thursday night in Arab Jabour, a mostly Sunni Muslim suburb south of Baghdad. American troops came under "heavy enemy fire during a raid targeting al-Qaida in Iraq terrorists and foreign fighter facilitators," the US military said in a statement. Coalition aircraft swooped in, dropping precision bombs on a building where eight suspects had barricaded themselves. All eight were killed. No US forces or Iraqi civilians were injured in the attack.
