US military: 28 extremists killed during firefight in Baghdad's Sadr city

The US military says soldiers have killed 28 militants during a four-hour firefight in Baghdad's Shi'ite militia stronghold of Sadr City. Lt. Col. Steve Stover, a US military spokesman, says the clashes broke out after a US patrol was attacked about 9:30 a.m. with rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns. He says six US soldiers were wounded in Tuesday's fighting but none of their injuries were life-threatening.
