Abu Ghuraib Shelled; Roadside Bombs in Baghdad

Wire services report that

Guerrillas fired mortar rounds at Abu Ghuraib prison outside Baghdad on Monday, lightly wounding a civilian “contractor” (likely a private security guard or translator, but the report is not specific). This attack marked the sixth time the prison has been attacked in this way. In April 22 prisoners were killed by mortar fire.

In central Baghdad near Haifa street, guerrillas detonated five roadside bombs as US military vehicles passed by, but only managed to put some dents in a Humvee; there were no casualties.

There were more explosions in Baghdad in the mid-afternoon local time, but the cause was unclear.
