Military officials offered no information about who was behind the attack, and the ambush undermined hopes that the killing on Tuesday of Saddam Hussein’s two sons, Uday and Qusay, would weaken resistance to American forces. The attack was the second serious strike against American troops in the last two days in and around the large northern Iraqi city of Mosul, where soldiers from the 101st joined with the Special Forces in a raid that killed the two Hussein heirs as they hid out in a home in a wealthy neighborhood.
