Wikileaks released a classified U.S. military video in which U.S. soldiers are shown shooting indiscriminately at a group of Iraqis. Two Reuters photographers were among those killed in the 2007 incident. Previous attempts by Reuters to see the film were thwarted. The Associated Press has confirmed the authenticity of the video.

Six Shi’ites were killed during a home invasion in Suwayra. A married couple and their four children, whose ages ranged from 6 to 11, were killed for unknown reasons.
