Four Americans killed in southern Iraq

Middle East Online



Bomb targeting US diplomatic convoy in Basra kills four American security guards.


BAGHDAD, September 7, 2005 - Four American security guards were killed Wednesday in a bomb attack targeting a US diplomatic convoy in the southern Iraqi town of Basra, the US embassy said.

Nine Iraqis, including four soldiers and a police colonel, were also killed and 19 others wounded in separate rebel attacks, most of them in the capital Baghdad, security sources said.

The four slain Americans worked for a private security firm "supporting the regional US embassy office in Basra", the embassy said in a statement.

Pictures taken by an AFP photographer at the scene showed a silver-coloured four-wheel drive vehicle on its roof with two bodies, wearing bullet-proof vests, lying nearby.

The incident occurred the day after two British soldiers were killed in a roadside bomb explosion on the outskirts of Basra, a dusty Shiite metropolis which is Iraq's second city.

British-patrolled southern Iraq has escaped much of the violence that plagues the rest of the country.

In Baghdad, an Iraqi defence ministry official was shot dead and his driver wounded when gunmen ambushed their car, an interior ministry official said.

In southern Baghdad, three civilians were killed and three others wounded as a car bomb exploded on the main highway in Dura district, an interior ministry official said.

Also in southern Baghdad, police said they found the bullet-riddled bodies of three unidentified men whose hands were tied behind their backs.

Northeast of Baghdad, four Iraqi soldiers were killed and five others wounded when their checkpoint near Khalis, 80 kilometers (60 miles) from the capital, came under fire, a military source said.

A police colonel was killed and three police commandos wounded when gunmen aboard two cars opened fire on their patrol in the west of the capital.

Seven civilians were wounded when a car bomb exploded in central Baghdad, according to hospital staff. The blast appeared to target a US convoy, but there was no immediate word on whether any US soldiers had been hurt.
