SEVEN Iraqis believed to have been stealing fuel from a pipeline were killed in a firefight with US troops near Samarra, north of Baghdad, the US military said today.

Master Sergeant Robert Cargie, spokesman of the 4th Infantry Division based in the northern city of Tikrit, said US troops approaching the pipeline had encountered about 40 men armed with AK-47 automatic rifles yesterday.

"As they tried to capture them, the soldiers came under fire. They returned fire, killing seven," Cargie said.
