Iraqi officials say 50 insurgents have been killed in an hours-long battle with Iraqi and U.S. forces in central Baghdad.
The U.S. military says no American or Iraqi troops were killed in Tuesday's fighting.
U.S. helicopters fired missiles at insurgent positions while U.S. fighter jets circled above the battle in Baghdad's Haifa Street area, a known stronghold of Sunni insurgents.
The U.S. military says fighting began when Iraqi troops entered the area to disrupt insurgent activity. The insurgents fought back with heavy gunfire, mortars, rocket-propelled grenades and sniper fire.
Elsewhere in Iraq, the U.S. military says a U.S. soldier died of a wound sustained during a combat operation in Diyala Province.
In other news, Turkish officials say at least 32 people were killed when a cargo plane traveling from Turkey crashed north of Baghdad Tuesday.
It is not clear what caused the Antonov-26 plane to crash. Turkey's Foreign Ministry says the plane was carrying Turkish workers and crashed as it tried to land in heavy fog.
