      Iraq minister says US, Iraqi troops killed 37

      By Reuters

      03/27/06 -- BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's security minister, a Shi'ite
      political ally of Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, accused U.S. and
      Iraqi troops on Monday of killing 37 unarmed people in an attack on a
      mosque complex a day earlier.

      "At evening prayers, American soldiers accompanied by Iraqi troops
      raided the Mustafa mosque and killed 37 people," Abd al-Karim al-Enzi,
      minister of state for national security, said.

      "They were all unarmed. Nobody fired a single shot at them (the
      troops). They went in, tied up the people and shot them all. They did
      not leave any wounded behind," he told Reuters.

      Shi'ite politicians had earlier said 20 people were killed at the
      mosque. The U.S. military's account of Sunday evening's incident said
      Iraqi special forces with U.S. advisers killed 16 "insurgents",
      arrested 15 people and freed an Iraqi hostage. The military denied
      entering any mosque.
