Baghdad, March 30 (VOI) – A U.S. force raided on Friday an office of Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr in al-Hurriya district, north Baghdad, killing a loyalist and a child and arresting two others, eyewitnesses said.
"The U.S. force opened fire and hurled tear gas canisters inside and around the office," the witness, a local resident of al-Hurriya, told the independent news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI).
The child was killed while passing by near the scene of the raid, the witness added, noting U.S. troops are still taking positions around the office.
No comment was made by U.S. forces or official Iraqi sources on the incident.
