    MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - U.S. soldiers killed four high-ranking
    allies of Saddam Hussein on Tuesday during a fierce four-hour
    battle at a villa in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the U.S.
    military said.

    Major Trey Cate of the 101st Airborne Division said 200 soldiers
    were sent to the house after receiving a tip that important
    members of Saddam's overthrown regime were there.

    He declined to identify them, and would not comment on local
    rumors that Saddam's sons Uday and Qusay were inside.

    American troops blasted the house with machineguns, grenades and
    anti-tank missiles after coming under fire from people inside,
    Cate said. Helicopters were also used to secure the area. After
    the battle, a small group of soldiers went into the house and
    brought out four bodies.

    Cate said five Iraqis were killed in the battle, including the
    four "high-value individuals," and at least five wounded. He
    said one U.S. soldier was shot in the chest but was in a stable

    Earlier, a senior officer at the scene said the high-ranking
    Iraqis had been captured rather than killed.

    "Individuals of very high interest to the coalition forces were
    hiding out in the building," Lieutenant Colonel William Bishop
    told Reuters.

    The house -- a large villa -- sustained considerable damage.

    U.S. forces have announced the capture of 34 of the 55 Iraqis on
    a most-wanted list of members of Saddam's regime, but Saddam and
    his sons have not been found.

    The U.S. has offered a reward of $25 million for information
    that allows them to capture or kill Saddam, and $15 million each
    for Uday and Qusay.

    U.S. officials say Saddam is probably still alive and hiding
    somewhere in Iraq. Audio tapes said to have been made by the
    deposed leader have been given to Arab television networks,
    exhorting Iraqis to fight occupying U.S. and British troops.

    Guerrilla attacks against U.S. forces have killed 39 American
    soldiers since May 1, when President Bush declared major combat
    over. On Sunday, two U.S. soldiers were killed in an ambush to
    the west of Mosul.
