Al Jazeera English - Middle East:
Five young girls and a baby have been killed in a US raid on a house in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, the US military has told Al Jazeera English.
The US military said two armed men had opened fire from the roof of a house on a US patrol disarming a roadside bomb, prompting the soldiers to reply with tank fire on Tuesday.
Following the pre-dawn barrage, US troops carried out 'an extensive search of the house and found one male and five females, ages ranging from infant to teenaged, dead,' the statement said.
