American Held in U.S. Camp Attack

A command tent of the 101st Airborne Division camp in Kuwait was attacked early Sunday with grenades, and 13 soldiers were wounded, six seriously, military officials said. An American soldier was detained as a suspect, the Army said.

Two persons of Middle Eastern descent were also detained in Camp Pennsylvania and questioned about the attack, said George Heath, civilian spokesman for Fort Campbell, Kentucky, home base of the 101st. He did not know if they are still being questioned.

Two Middle Eastern men had been hired as contractors working for the Army at that camp, but Heath did not say in what capacity.

The American soldier detained is assigned to the 101st Airborne, said Max Blumenfeld, a spokesman for the U.S. Army V Corps.

Of the 13 wounded, two were treated at the scene and released and helicopters evacuated 11 to Army hospitals, he said.

Preliminary information suggests the attack at 1:30 a.m. was carried out using hand grenades only, Blumenfeld said. Earlier reports had also talked of small-arms fire. The motive most likely was resentment, he said, without elaborating.

Blumenfeld said investigators do not know if others were involved and the suspect has not been charged.

Names of the wounded were not released.

Earlier, Heath said the attack appeared to have been carried out by terrorists.

The attack happened at a rear base camp of the 101st, near the Iraqi border, U.S. military officials said.

Near Camp New York, another encampment in Kuwait, a Patriot missile hit an incoming missile, a military official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. There were no reports of injuries or where debris from the missile might have landed. Camp New York, which is near Camp Pennsylvania, was the largest of the desert staging camps.

Jim Lacey, a correspondent for Time magazine, told CNN that he was about 20 yards (meters) away when explosions at Camp Pennsylvania went off at what he said were two tents that housed division leadership.

"The people who did it ran off into the darkness," he said.

He said he interviewed an Army major who was sitting outside the tent. "He said he saw the grenade roll by him," Lacey said.

After the attack, troops fanned out around the compound to find the perpetrators, Lacey said.

The military did not identify the unit of the 101st that was in the camp but said it had been in Kuwait for about one week. Most of the division has entered southern Iraq.

Kuwait was the main launching point for the tens of thousands of ground forces who have entered Iraq.

The 101st Airborne is a rapid deployment group trained to go anywhere in the world within 36 hours. The roughly 22,000 members of the 101st were deployed Feb. 6. The last time the entire division was deployed was during the 1991 Persian Gulf War, which began after Iraq invaded neighboring Kuwait.

Most recently, it hunted suspected Taliban and al-Qaida fighters in the mountains of Afghanistan. Its exploits are followed in Kentucky with much pride.

News of the attack at the camp compounded the anxiety of relatives of the division's soldiers.

"I get a little worried but when I think I should be crying, I'm not," said Chelsey Payne of Clarksville, Tenn., whose husband, Sgt. Robert Payne, is with the division. "I just don't get scared about my own husband, I just know that he's a good soldier and he's coming home. He promised me."
