By The Associated Press

BAGHDAD (AP) ' Iraqi police and health officials say robbers have killed nine people and wounded 14 others in a jewelry heist in eastern Baghdad.

A police officer says two carloads of robbers stormed four jewelry stores Monday in a small market in the Shiite neighborhood of Ur before noon.

He said the gunmen stole gold and cash after a gunfight with nearby security forces.

He said two policemen and two soldiers were among the dead and the rest were passers-by.

A doctor in a nearby hospital confirmed the casualty figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
