Bomb Kills U.S. Soldier in Restive Iraqi Town

A U.S. soldier was killed and three more were wounded Sunday when their convoy ran over a bomb planted on a road in the volatile Iraqi town of Falluja, the U.S.-led military force in Iraq said. The town, a hotbed of opposition to the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq, was the scene of anti-American protests on Saturday after U.S. soldiers shot dead 10 members of a local security force, apparently mistaking them for resistance fighters. “At 0800 (midnight EDT) this morning in Falluja, a vehicle convoy hit an IED (improvised explosive device)… one soldier was killed,” a spokeswoman for the occupying force said. Witnesses in Falluja, 30 miles west of Baghdad, said a Humvee military vehicle had been destroyed in the attack. One soldier lay motionless by the road near the Humvee after the attack as other soldiers combed the area. Full Story
