BAGHDAD, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- A roadside bomb went off in southwestern
Baghdad near a US patrol on Friday, causing casualties among US soldiers
and killing two Iraqi civilians, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua.

"A roadside bomb detonated at about 11:15 a.m. (0815 GMT) in Saidiyah
district when a US patrol passed by, damaging a Humvee and killing or
wounding the US soldiers aboard," the source said.
Two Iraqi people were also killed in the blast when their car was
passing by, the source added.
US troops have cordoned off the area preventing police from approaching
the scene, he said, adding that Iraqi policemen saw an unknown number of US
soldiers lying on the ground after the blast.
