(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) MAJOR-GENERAL MOHAMMED AL-ASKARI, DEFENSE MINISTRY SPOKESMAN, SAYING: "Some of the snipers are besieged by troops and their ammunition will be running out. We have killed two of them and one of them escaped, leaving his weapon behind. We are chasing him now. The military work here must be done carefully because of the presence of civilians and families. We are here to arrest the criminals and the killers." The conflict in Anbar has focused Washington's attention in Iraq as fears grow about spillover from the war in neighboring Syria.
