US terror alert lowered to yellow
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration lowered the terror alert level from orange to yellow Wednesday, saying the end of heavy fighting in Iraq has diminished the threat of terrorism in the United States.
It was unclear whether the heightened alert had prevented any terrorist attacks, officials said.
A number of security measures around the country will be relaxed, officials at the Department of Homeland Security said.
For example, the federal “Operation Liberty Shield” — the code name for security measures keyed specifically to the war on Iraq — will be terminated. It called for National Guard or state police to be posted at nuclear power plants and other critical facilities.
Still, a significant threat remains, officials said.
The new, yellow level marks an elevated risk of terrorist attacks. It is the middle level on the five-tier danger scale. The old level, orange, signifies a high risk and is the second-highest level.
American troops accused of shooting more Iraqis
MOSUL, Iraq (AP) — U.S. Marines traded more gunfire with residents of Iraq’s third-largest city Wednesday, marking the second straight day of violence in a place that may be a bellwether for the newly occupied country.
Hospital officials said a total of 17 people were killed and 18 wounded during civil disturbances over the two days. The U.S. Central Command said its troops were involved in a gun-battle Tuesday, but had no immediate comment on Wednesday’s events.
Hospitals said 14 people died Tuesday, while U.S. officers put the death toll around seven. Three more Iraqis were reported fatally shot Wednesday and 17 wounded.
“They are killing us and no one’s talking about it,” Zahra Yassin said at a hospital with her wounded son. “We want Saddam back. At least there was security.”
Wednesday’s shooting apparently began with an attempt by police to drive looters away from the Central Bank.
