Residents of Sadr City blocked many roads in the city in a bid to prevent US military vehicles from entering the poor slums. One Iraqi was killed and five wounded in the holy city of Karbala in night-time clashes between coalition troops and the militia of radical Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr. [Photo/icpress]
