BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi security officials say an army helicopter has been shot during clashes with Islamic militants west of Baghdad.

They said the helicopter’s two-man crew was killed when their aircraft was shot down Monday near the city of Fallujah in Anbar province. Fallujah has been under the control of Sunni militants since January.
