Four U.S. soldiers injured in Iraqi bomb attacks
Four U.S. soldiers were injured Sunday in two separate bomb attacks in Iraq, a military spokesman said.
Sergeant Mark Ingham said an attack with an "improvised explosive device" took place about 11:00 am (local time) in the town of Iskandariya, some 45 kilometers south of Baghdad.
The attack occurred on a stretch of road linking Baghdad with the Muslim Shiite holy city of Karbala. No other details were available.
The two wounded servicemen were taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
Meanwhile, Ingham said another two soldiers were wounded at Taji, around 10 kilometers north of Baghdad, by an IED explosion at 9:45 am (local time) and were evacuated to the 28th Combat Support Hospital for treatment. (Albawaba.com)
