One US soldier Killed, 5 wounded in Iraq
Guerrillas exploded an improvised explosive device as a patrol of the 82nd Airborne Division was passing near Fallujah on Monday at 1 pm Iraq time, then attacked with small arms fire (the typical tactic of the low-grade guerrilla war). This was the third attack in two days in the vicinity of Fallujah.
In Baqubah, northeast of Baghdad, Iraqi police apprehended an assassin planning to kill the deputy governor of Diyala province. He was trying to plant a bomb under his car. (AFP)
