WARSAW, Poland_Two Polish troops and one U.S. soldier were injured Saturday
at their base in Iraq when another U.S. soldier accidentally fired his

One of the Poles and the injured American were taken to a military hospital
in Baghdad, said Col. Dariusz Kacperczyk, spokesman of the Polish led-force
in the Iraqi city of Diwaniyah, in a statement.
