Seven More in Twelve Hours
08.07.2003 [23:08]

A BLISTERING series of attacks, coming nearly hourly, left seven US soldiers wounded in and around the capital overnight, while the US led provisional authority announced a $US2,500 ($3,695) reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone who kills a coalition soldier or Iraqi police officer.

The reward, announced by former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik, was an effort to stem a spiralling insurgency that has plagued coalition efforts to bring security and basic services to Iraq.

Last week, the US-led provisional authority that runs Iraq announced a $US25 million ($36.95 million) bounty on the head of Saddam Hussein, and a $US15 million ($22.17 million) reward for the capture of each of his two sons.

"I urge the Iraqi people to come forward to take these people off the streets of the country," Kerik said. He also announced that US forces and Iraqi police had arrested Sabah Mirza, a former Saddam bodyguard, on June 26.

Mirza was Saddam's bodyguard in the 1980s before being fired over a dispute. His current connection to the former Iraqi dictator was not clear, but a raid on Mirza's farm after his arrest netted plastic explosives, mortars, a machine gun and 10,000 rounds of ammunition.

US soldiers raided a building in central Baghdad today, following up on a claim by residents that say they thought they saw Saddam driving through the area yesterday, and say the ousted leader was met with cheering and gunfire by supporters.

Several pro-Saddam residents chanted pro-Saddam slogans today as the US servicemen conducted their sweep, with some singing: "With our souls and our blood we sacrifice ourselves for you Saddam".

The last reported sighting of Saddam was on April 9 in the Azamiyah neighbourhood of northeastern Baghdad as the capital fell.

L. Paul Bremer, the top US official in Iraq, said the coalition would not rest until Saddam's fate was determined and reassured Iraqis that he would never again rule their country.

"He may be alive, but he is not coming back," Bremer said. "I think the noose is going to tighten around his neck. His days in Iraq are finished."

Today brought fresh attacks in what has become a bloody and uncertain peace for coalition forces.

Insurgents dropped a homemade bomb from a bridge onto a passing US military convoy in Baghdad, injuring two soldiers. Another two soldiers were injured when their vehicle struck a land mine in the capital, said Sgt Patrick Compton, a military spokesman.

In Kirkuk, 280km north of the capital, assailants fired a rocket-propelled grenade at a military convoy, injuring three servicemen. The patrol returned fire, but there was no word of Iraqi casualties or arrests.

In other violence, witnesses said three Iraqis - including a 13-year-old boy - were killed following a grenade attack on a police station in a Baghdad suburb. Witnesses told Associated Press Television News that those killed when soldiers returned fire were not among those who attacked the police station.

Late yesterday, insurgents fired mortars at a base near Balad, 88km north of the capital, the military said. US forces subsequently caught 12 of the suspected attackers. A British soldier was wounded in a sniper attack in Basra, southern Iraq, while on patrol Sunday night, the US Defence Ministry said.

The soldier was in stable condition at a British army field hospital where he was being treated for gunshot wounds in a leg, the British government said.

Since US President George W. Bush declared on May 1 that major combat in Iraq was over, 29 US troops have been killed by hostile fire and 44 others have died in accidents and other non-hostile circumstances, a total of 73.

In the approximately three weeks of fighting before Baghdad fell to US troops on April 9, 102 Americans died, including 87 killed by hostile fire.

In the south today, the US-appointed governor of the holy Shi'ite Muslim city of Karbala resigned today after allegations of financial improprieties, the US military governor said.

Ali Kammouna, 31, had been the governor of Karbala since May. He was the first postwar governor to be approved by Marines, who have been occupying the southern city since late April.

Kammouna was the second governor in the predominantly Shi'ite south to lose his job in the past two weeks.

The governor of Najaf, another Shi'ite holy city, was arrested and removed from his post after he was charged with corruption and kidnapping.

Meanwhile, two Arabic television stations aired an audiotape purportedly of Saddam Hussein that they claimed to be new. But journalists familiar with the tape said it sounded remarkably similar to another audiotaped message from the ousted dictator that first appeared in May.

In London, British Prime Minister Tony Blair insisted weapons of mass destruction would be found in Iraq and dismissed concerns that he had overplayed the threat posed by Saddam in the run-up to the war.

In Washington, the White House acknowledged that US President George W. Bush was incorrect when he said in his State of the Union address that Iraq recently had sought significant quantities of uranium in Africa.
