US troops killed a local al-Qaida in Iraq leader and captured three of his followers during a raid Tuesday near Beiji in northern Iraq, the US military said. A US statement said the suspect fled when he saw the soldiers coming but the troops fired and killed him, the statement said. "The other three suspects were detained without incident," the statement said. "There were multiple small arms weapons and ammunition discovered and destroyed on location." It said "multiple women and children" were found at the raid site but none was harmed. The statement accused insurgents of continuing "to exploit Iraqi women and children by placing them in danger with their actions and presence."
