Violence is continuing in Iraq, two days after ex-dictator Saddam Hussein was hanged in Baghdad.
The U.S. military says American troops have killed six terrorists during a raid on a suspected Al-Qaida safe house in the capital. The military says U.S. troops came under heavy fire from several buildings and returned fire.
The military says terrorists were also firing from what it later learned was a building housing a Sunni political party, The National Dialogue Front.
But Saleh al-Mutlah, the party head, told Al-Arabiya television that American aircraft bombed his offices and a nearby home, killing two party workers and a family of four.
Elsewhere, police say gunmen have killed five family members traveling from Mosul in northern Iraq to Baghdad.
The U.S. military has announced that two soldiers were killed Sunday in an explosion in Diyala province, north of Baghdad.
On Sunday, U.S. media reported that the number of U.S. military deaths had reached the three-thousand mark. The Pentagon has not confirmed that number.
In other news, reports from Jordan say Saddam Hussein's eldest daughter, Raghad joined hundreds in Amman on Monday protesting the execution of the deposed dictator.
Sunni clerics in Iraq also have criticized the execution, saying it was ordered by what it called occupiers.
Some critics say the execution was a sectarian act. Shi'ite hangmen and witnesses taunted Saddam as his death neared by shouting "Moqtada," the name of a senior Shi'ite cleric and opponent of Saddam.
