US and Iraqi troops have been accused of killing several civilians during a military operation in Iraq's Maysan province, on the border with Iran.
The troops say they were raiding Iranian-backed fighters and weapons smugglers when they came under attack. A gunfight ensued in which lives were lost.
But Iraqis are angry and they are calling on the central government to punish those responsible for the civilian deaths.
