1 US Soldier killed, 1 Wounded; Spanish Base Shelled
Wire services say that one US soldier was killed and another wounded Tuesday in a roadside bombing by guerrillas near Baquba north of Baghdad. Also, on Monday night three mortar shells hit the Spanish base at Diwaniyah, but produced no casualties. Diwaniyah is in the south, and there are many more such attacks there than is commonly realized. Last I knew, only about 60% of attacks occur in the so-called “Sunni Triangle.” Some of the most spectacular bombings, as at Najaf and Karbala, have been in the south.
