Four US Soldiers Killed, 18 wounded
In addition to the three US soldiers killed in Karbala on Friday–one of whom the Arabic press is calling a senior officer– (see below), another was killed by a roadside bomb set by a guerrillas in Baghdad (it wounded two others). Guerrillas set off a roadside bomb in Mosul that wounded nine US troops. This was one of the worst days for our troops since the formal end of hostilities on May 2. The number of troops killed in action since that date has climbed above 100. (This number excludes those who died of suicide or accidents).
