Seven Terrorist Insurgents Killed

The American Forces Press Service reports that seven terrorists who were firing at US troops from a mosque have been killed by a helicopter gunship attack. From the bulletin:
Unable to suppress a barrage of machine gun and rocket propelled grenade fire from insurgents holed up in a mosque in the Sarai district of Tal Afar, Iraq, coalition forces called in helicopter gunships to stop the enemy salvo, Multinational Force Iraq officials reported today.

Seven terrorists were killed in the Sept. 4 helicopter counterattack at a mosque in eastern Tal Afar described as a Takfirist meeting place.

No injuries to U.S. personnel were reported, officials noted.
When Iraqi police recently moved in to search a black car with two men inside that they'd stopped at a checkpoint, they found a wounded insurgent and another terrorist trying to eat a note that described an attack on a coalition forces' forward operating base, officials said.

The car was also loaded with bomb-making materials, including five telephone receivers, six radios, two cell phones, one wired to a radio, six washing machine timers, five extended-range antennae and batteries. The men also had $1,400 in $100 U.S. bills, according to officials.
I'm reprinting these stories on the off chance that our loyal, unbiased, non-partisan mainstream media completely ignore them.
