MOSUL, Iraq, May 14 : Clashes erupted between insurgents and Iraqi security forces fighting along with U.S. troops in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul today, killing one policeman and wounding three others, sources said.

A Reuters reporter in Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of the capital, said there was heavy exchange of machinegun fire. No more details were immediately available.

Police and hospital sources said one policeman was killed and three wounded.

Mosul, Iraq's third largest city, has a volatile mix of mostly Sunnis Arabs on the west bank of the Tigris and ethnic Kurds on the east. It has also seen Sunni insurgent violence against U.S. forces and the Shi'ite- and Kurdish-led government.
