The U.S. military said it captured a rebel leader and 78 other Iraqis Tuesday in an operation north of Baghdad as anti-U.S. attacks and demonstrations persisted in the wake of Saddam Hussein's capture.

In a battle late Monday near Samarra, attackers ambushed a U.S. patrol with a roadside bomb, automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades. No U.S. soldiers were hurt, but 11 attackers were killed, military officials said.
