Al-Qaeda Operatives Kill 11 Policemen In Their Homes (Iraq)

U.S. and Iraqi sources reported that Al-Qaeda operatives who infiltrated into Iraq from Syria had penetrated a settlement in the Al-Anbar province and attacked the homes of 11 policemen, killing all 11 as well as the son of one of the policemen.

It was reported that the infiltrators wore U.S. military uniforms and that one, a Lebanese, was caught on his way back to Syria.

On May 10, the Iraqi government launched an operation to purge Ninewah province, which borders Al-Anbar province, of Al-Qaeda.
