US Soldier Killed in Iraq Attack

One American soldier has been killed and five others wounded in an attack in the central Iraqi town of Falluja, US Central Command has said. “An unknown assailant fired at them with a rocket-propelled grenade. The injured were evacuated… to a local military medical facility,” Central Command said. Falluja, about 50 kilometres (30 miles) west of Baghdad, has been the scene of repeated attacks on US forces since clashes with the local population in April in which the Americans killed at least 15 people and injured dozens of others. In a separate development, Central Command said that its forces had captured Ayad Futayyih Khalifa al-Rawi, the commander of one of Saddam Hussein’s paramilitary forces. The soldiers who were attacked early on Thursday were assigned to the 3rd Armoured Cavalry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, Central Command said. Full Story
