Iraqis Celebrate Asia Cup Victory


People across Iraq have celebrated their national football team's Asia Cup victory over Saudi Arabia, with cheering and dancing in the steets.

Officials banned vehicle traffic and imposed tight security during and after the match. Last week, a bomb attack on a football celebration killed some 50 people.

No major bombings were reported Sunday following the team's 1-0 win in Jakarta. But police said that despite a ban on celebratory gunfire, at least two people were killed by stray bullets.

The football team includes Shi'ites, Sunnis and Kurds, and has been heralded as a symbol of Iraqi unity. On state television, reporters draped in the Iraqi flag interviewed crowds of cheering spectators in cities across the country.

Meanwhile, the US military says coalition forces killed eight terrorists and detained 22 other suspects during operations Sunday targeting al-Qaida across central Iraq.

The military also says two US soldiers were killed during combat operations, one in eastern Baghdad and one north of the city.
