Topic: Three US soldiers wounded in car bomb blast in Baghdad


BAGHDAD, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- A car bomb detonated near a US military
patrol in eastern Baghdad on Sunday, wounding three soldiers aboard, an
Interior Ministry source said.
"A car bomb blew up near a US military convoy when it was patrolling an
area near the Iraqi Ministry of Culture in Zaiyouna district, wounding
three soldiers aboard and damaging a US Humvee, " the source told Xinhua.
US troops cordoned off the area and prevented Iraqi police and civilians
from approaching the scene, he said.
Earlier, a US officer was wounded when a roadside bomb struck his patrol
near al-Mustansriyah super market in eastern Baghdad.
The US military had no immediate word on the two incidents.
Insurgents often target US soldiers in the violence-ravaged country, and
the US death toll since the US-led war on Iraq began in March 2003 has
nearly amounted to 2,000.
