Facing continued anti-American anger, U.S. Marines again clashed with local Iraqis in Mosul Wednesday, resulting in at least three more Iraqis killed and several wounded by U.S. forces.
A violent clash between thousands of Iraqis and U.S. Marines and Special Forces left at least seven Iraqis dead and some 16 wounded in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, Central Command reported Wednesday.
The northern city of Mosul fell to coalition and Kurdish forces apparently without a fight early Friday following the surrender of an entire corps of the Iraqi military.
With signs of large-scale Iraqi surrenders in the region, U.S. special forces troops and Kurdish soldiers entered Iraq's third largest city Thursday, according to American Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
