Nuri al-Maliki, Iraq’s prime minister, has denounced a US raid on targets near Baghdad as “a crime”, saying that it violated the security pact between the two countries.

Two people were killed in the raid on a house in Kut, 150km southeast of Baghdad on Sunday, according to Iraqi officials said, but the US disputed the details of the attack.

The US military said that just one person, a women, was killed during the operation, which it said targeted the financier of Shia fighters funded and armed by Iran.

The military said that six suspected fighters were arrested, but Iraqi officials said the men were later released.

Mohammed al-Askari, the defence ministry spokesman, said “the committee has managed to get the six people detained by the Americans released”. >>>
