AP reported that overnight, guerrillas launched two mortar shells at the Coalition headquarters in the southern, Shiite city of Nasiriyah. They caused no damage or injuries, according to a military spokesman.

In Mosul, assailants shot Muhammad al-Jawadi, a lawyer, and his son. The US had appointed him prosecutor in a new court aimed at fighting corruption. Al-Jawadi was in critical condition, but his son was stable. Mosul has seen a number of such assassinations in recent months, often targetting judicial officials investigating the old Baath party and its crimes.
