Officials: Clashes in Iraq's Sadr City kill 11 A fragile cease-fire failed to stop fighting in Baghdad's Sadr City where the latest clashes between Shiite extremists and US-backed Iraqi forces killed 11 men and wounded 19, Iraqi hospital officials said Tuesday. The US military said that it responded to several attacks by militants with precision strikes, but only confirmed killing three militants. Two of the militants were killed in a Hellfire missile strike by an attack aircraft, according to the military. US soldiers also suppressed "enemy fire" in four other clashes with tanks and attack aircraft, the military said.
