Iraq group says captures U.S. Marine after clash

DUBAI (Reuters) - An Iraqi insurgent group said on Wednesday it has captured a U.S. Marine who was wounded in a clash in western
Iraq in which eight other Marines were killed.

The Army of Ansar al-Sunna said on its Web site that it would soon issue pictures of the Marine, who it said it captured after ambushing U.S. forces near the town of Haditha, northwest of Baghdad. It did not say when it carried out the attack.

The statement could not be verified immediately.

The U.S. military said on Tuesday six Marines were killed on Monday in the same area. The body of one Marine was initially unaccounted for but was recovered later, the statement said.
