May 26, 1999|From Times Wire Reports

Iraq said buildings were damaged when U.S. warplanes hit targets in a Western-imposed "no-fly" zone in the north of the country. "Hostile formations bombed some service installations in Mosul, and the bombing led to damage of buildings," the official Iraqi News Agency quoted a military spokesman as saying. INA did not say whether the buildings were civilian or military. The U.S. said in a statement that its planes bombed an Iraqi communications site after being fired on by antiaircraft artillery in the no-fly zone.
