An overnight U.S. helicopter raid in Baghdad killed at least 13 Iraqi civilians, many of them people sleeping on roofs to keep cool, a report says.

At least 20 people were wounded in the Shula district in the western part of the city, Alalam Satellite TV reported Friday. Many of the wounded were women and children, it said.

In Samara, masked gunmen believed to be members of al-Qaida in Iraq launched a coordinated attack on four police checkpoints and a police station. A police officer and two civilians were reported killed in the fighting that followed and 14 insurgents were taken prisoner.

An al-Qaida assault earlier in the day on two villages near Baquba killed 17 civilians and 10 gunmen.

In northern Iraq, a barber was gunned down and a woman kidnapped in Kirkuk, the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA reported. A body was found in a village near the city.

In Mosul, police reported finding two bodies, one of them a university professor. Both had been shot execution style and had their eyes covered and their hands tied behind them. (c) UPI
