Several witnesses also said a helicopter was shot down.
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The U.S. military says a report from Iraqi police that an American helicopter has been shot down near the city of Ramadi is false.
"We have not had any casualties in the past 24 hours and no downed helicopters," a spokesman for the U.S. Marine Corps in western Iraq said on Wednesday.
Iraqi police in Ramadi had said a U.S. helicopter was shot down during fierce fighting in the city, and that three crew were reported killed.
