Iraqi troops in the spotlight as Baghdad bombers kill 12

Iraqi security forces were under the spotlight Monday after a coordinated suicide attack on an army complex killed 12 people, with US troops among those who fired back in a bid to repel the operation.

American involvement in the response to Sunday’s attack was the first reported such engagement for US forces in Baghdad since they declared an official end to combat operations in Iraq five days ago.
The morning attack targeted Rusafa military command headquarters, which only three weeks ago was hit by a massive suicide bombing that killed dozens of young men preparing to sign up. Accounts varied between witnesses and US and Iraqi security forces, but the capital’s security command said five suicide bombers had approached the compound in a minibus.
