Americans Killed Near Baghdad
03.08.2003 [13:50]


BAGHDAD, Iraq, Aug. 2 ― A homemade bomb exploded under a convoy this morning, killing two American soldiers and their interpreter, and a grenade attack Friday night left another American dead, military officials said today.

At least four other soldiers were wounded in the attacks.

In Friday night's attack, soldiers with the Fourth Infantry Division were struck by a rocket-propelled grenade about 10:30 p.m. while traveling in a convoy near the town of Shumayt, 40 miles north of the capital, said Specialist Nicole Thompson, a military spokeswoman in Baghdad. One soldier was killed and three were wounded.

Today, two soldiers and their interpreter were killed between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. when a homemade bomb exploded under their convoy on the outskirts of Baghdad, striking two Humvees, said Pfc. Jose Belen, with the First Armored Division.

It was not clear whether the bomb was detonated on command or merely left in the road for the convoy to strike, Private Belen said. Some witnesses at the scene said a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the convoy as well, he added.

A sniper then sprayed the Humvees with machine-gun fire, and one soldier was struck and wounded in the neck, Private Belen said. A group of soldiers with the First Armored Division who happened to be in the area pursued the attackers but did not find anyone, he added.

The attack took place under an overpass on a highway near Al Muthara bridge, on the capital's northern outskirts. By late afternoon, all wreckage had been cleared away and no witnesses to the attack could be found.

The soldiers who died were with a civil affairs unit, Private Belen said, though he declined to say what division they belonged to. The deaths brought to 55 the number of soldiers killed since President Bush declared an end to major combat in Iraq on May 1.

In Baghdad today, the American military, working with a private contractor, began removing the fuel from 74 Russian-made antiaircraft missiles that had been placed at various points in the capital before and during the war by the former government, officials said
