Fresh violence was reported as traffic returned to Baghdad's streets. In central Baghdad, gunmen opened fire on a crowded street, killing six people. In a southern district, armed men in two cars attacked a police patrol, wounding six officers.
Earlier, the U.S. military said one of its fighter jets crashed in Iraq with one pilot aboard. The F-16 was supporting coalition ground forces when it crashed northwest of Baghdad. There was no information about the cause of the crash or the fate of the pilot.
