US Forces Raid Iraqi Police Center

TEHRAN (FNA)- US troops in Iraq brought a police center under siege in the northern province of Diyala Tuesday afternoon after hitting and handcuffing deputy chief of the center.



FNA dispatches from the city of Jelola in Diyala province said that the US troopers had entered the city police center and arrested and moved the second man in charge of the station after hitting him.

Eye-witnesses told FNA correspondent that the US soldiers interrogated all the police squad and confiscated all the documents and computer files and date at the center.

Dispatches also said that the US troops have now laid a siege to the center and blocked entrance.

The move is a flagrant violation of the security agreement signed between Baghdad and Washington last year.

Before Iraqi cabinet and parliament gave their approval for signing the deal with the US in November, Washington had for months been in talks with Iraqi officials to get them to sign the provocative security agreement which secured long-term US presence in Iraq.

The Status of Forces Agreements (SOFA), which granted US forces in Iraq immunity from prosecution, faced widespread opposition among Iraqi politicians.
