Meanwhile, witnesses said that about 40 people were arrested during the raid at the Abu Hanifa Mosque in the capital's northwestern Azamiyah neighborhood.
The purpose of the raid was not immediately clear. The Abu Hanifa Mosque has long been associated with anti-U.S. agitation and support for the former regime.
In the northern town of Mosul, Iraqi special police and U.S. forces raided a hospital which they said had been used to treat insurgents wounded in recent fighting.
And finally, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) accused both sides in recent fighting in Al-Fallujah of what an ICRC official called "utter contempt" for their obligation to protect human life and dignity.
