U.S. troops fired on car containing Iraqi Governing Council member

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) U.S. troops opened fire accidently on a car carrying a member of the Iraqi Governing Council, the Iraqi administration said Wednesday. The council member escaped injury but the driver was hurt.

Mohammed Bahr al-Uloum, a Shiite Muslim cleric, was traveling inside the U.S.-guarded compound, known as the ''green zone,'' when the shooting took place. The statement did not give a time, and U.S. officials at the military press center said they knew nothing of the incident.
