Incident in Ishaqi


The U.S. military said on Tuesday it was investigating Iraqi police allegations that its soldiers shot dead a family of 11 in their home last week.
Police in Ishaqi, 100 km (60 miles) north of the capital, said five children under school age, four women and two men were shot dead by troops in a house that was then blown up.

"It's a clear and perfect crime without any doubt," said local police Colonel Farouq Hussein at the time, saying autopsies had found that all the victims were shot in the head.

The bodies, their hands bound, had been dumped in one room before the house was destroyed, Hussein said.

A U.S. military spokesman at the time said the four dead included a guerrilla and said they died after troops were fired on from the house as they arrived to arrest an al Qaeda suspect.
