GI, Interpreter Killed In Iraq Ambush

An American soldier with the First Armored Division died along with an Iraqi interpreter when the Humvee in which they were riding was attacked Monday morning, a U.S. military spokesman said. The ambush happened in the As-Sulayka neighborhood of Baghdad around 10:30 a.m. local time, the spokesman said. While a witness at the scene told CNN it appeared that a rocket-propelled grenade struck the Humvee, the military said the attack involved “an improvised explosive device and small arms fire.” The ambush was the latest in a series of hit-and-run attacks against American forces in Iraq. Two U.S. soldiers were killed Sunday and another was wounded after being ambushed with small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades. That attack happened west of Mosul, in northern Iraq. The three soldiers, from the 101st Airborne Division, were brought to a hospital, where two of them died, U.S. military officials said. Full Story
