Air strike kills 'Iraq militants'
US forces in Iraq have killed 12 suspected militants and a woman in a raid and air strike on a house outside Baghdad, military officials said.

The military says troops came under fire when approaching the house, which it described as a militant hideout.

All the dead men were said to have been wearing vests loaded with ammunition. There was no word on US casualties.

In other incidents, four bullet-riddled bodies were found in Baghdad and one civilian was killed in a roadside bomb.
