Two Us Troops Killed; US kills Sisters
Guerrillas in Mosul killed a soldier with mortar fire that hit the 101st Airborne Division HQ on Friday. On Thursday, a US soldier had been shot to death inside a military base in Ramadi.
The CPA is strongly denying a wire service story (earlier mentioned here) that US soldiers in Baquba shot dead two girls, Fatima and Azra, 15 and 12, on Thursday; the wire services said that they were collecting wood from a field in the middle of the day. The CPA says that the soldiers came into conflict with armed men, and then later found the two girls’ bodies in the woods, suggesting that it was guerrillas who killed them.
