Bomb Blast In Baghdad Kills 1 Us

Bomb blast in Baghdad kills 1 US soldier, 4 Iraqis, wounds 16

Guerrillas set off a bomb in Baghdad as a US military convoy was passing from one direction and an Iraqi civilian minibus from the other. At least 1 US soldier was killed, and eyewitnesses spoke of seeing others wounded. At least 4 Iraqis were killed, and some 16 wounded.

Meanwhile, about 1000 mainly Shiite demonstrators held a rally in downtown Baghdad in favor of US troops, protesting against the guerrillas who kill them and also kill Iraqi by-standers. The political affiliation of the protestors was not mentioned in the press. It is possible that they were reacting to Friday’s bombing and the deaths of civilian Iraqis.
