Cameras Roll as US Helicopters Attack Syrian Village


Syria Calls U.S. Attack ‘Serious Aggression’

SUKKARIYEH, Syria (AP) - A resident of the village that was the scene of a U.S. raid says he saw at least two men taken into custody by American forces and whisked away by helicopter.

The villager spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared for his life.

Another villager at the site displayed amateur video footage he took with his mobile phone that shows four helicopters flying toward them as villagers point to the skies in alarm.

An Associated Press journalist at the attack site in far eastern Syria on Monday saw the grainy video.

A U.S. military official in Washington confirmed Sunday that special forces had conducted the raid in Syria, targeting al-Qaida-linked foreign fighters. At least seven men died.
