Iraq aid agency 'attacked' by US
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/6184263.stm

The Iraqi Red Crescent, the country's biggest humanitarian organisation, has accused United States troops of attacking its offices and vehicles.

The organisation's vice-president said attacks by US-led forces were the biggest problem it faced.

The Red Crescent, which has a staff of 1,000 and 200,000 volunteers, is the only Iraqi aid group working across the country's 18 provinces.

The US military said it was checking the allegations.
