The deputy commander of the Iraqi army in western Al-Anbar province was shot dead by US troops at a checkpoint Tuesday night, a police officer said.

"The US forces opened fire at 8:00 pm on Brigadier General Ismail Swayed al-Obeid, who had left his base in Baghdadi to head home," police Captain Amin al-Hitti said.


Now there was a curfew in affect (why this person wasn't aware we don't know the details yet). One thing we do know....he wasn't driving towards a checkpoint with Italians.
