9 policemen killed, injured in Anbar's Baghdadi district
Three Iraqi policemen were killed and six others wounded, including a local official in al-Baghdadi district of Anbar province, a security source said on Saturday.

This came during a joint operation carried out by Iraqi and US forces at dawn on Saturday to arrest one of the gunmen.

In a statement, al-Jazeera operations said that when troops approached Iran-backed militias IMIS positions in al-Baghdadi, they directly fired at US troops because they thought they were ISIS terrorists.

US forces responded to the sources of fire by Apache aircraft, killing three policemen and wounding the police director of al-Baghdadi Salam al-Obeidi as well as the director of the district of Baghdadi Sharhabil al-Obeidi slightly injured.
