BAGHDAD, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- A roadside bomb went off near an Iraqi army
patrol in western Iraq, killing ten soldiers and wounding five others,
witnesses said Thursday.
"An explosive charge detonated near a passing Iraqi army patrol on the
main road west of Haditha town late Wednesday, killing ten soldiers and
wounding five others," local residents told Xinhua on condition of
anonymity.
The blast, which destroyed a truck carrying the soldiers, was followed
by a 15-minute fighting between soldiers and unknown gunmen, they said,
adding more Iraqi and U.S. forces blocked the area searching for the
attackers.
There was no immediate U.S. and Iraqi military comment.
