NEW US AIR STRIKES ON IRAQ

          BAGHDAD (CWNews.com) -- American bombers struck several Iraqi targets on Tuesday, June 8, after complaining that Iraqi anti-aircraft units were firing at US planes in the "no-fly" zone of northern Iraq.

          US military sources said that the planes, "responding in self defense," hit communications posts near the city of Mosul. The bombers reportedly returned to their bases in Turkey without further incident.

          Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Raphael I Bidawid of Baghdad has complained that the air strikes on Iraq-- combined with the longstanding trade restrictions on that country-- are causing immense suffering among the civilian population, at a time when the world's attention is concentrated on the Balkans.
