Troops target homes

U.S. warplanes bombed several Iraqi houses along the Syrian border Tuesday morning, killing a man described by the military as a "known terrorist" and destroying what officials called three insurgent safe houses. The military statement said there was little damage to surrounding buildings. Iraqi residents, however, said there had been massive property damage and high civilian casualties. Residents put the death toll for the bombings at 56, and said U.S. warplanes also attacked rescuers attempting to extract survivors from the debris. -- Los Angeles Times
