An ambush on the outskirts of ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's ancestral hometown of Tikrit killed three U.S. soldiers and injured two late Thursday night, according to a U.S. military spokesman.
Lieutenant-Colonel William McDonald said the three soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division were killed by a small arms fire in the Al-Ouja village, located south of Tikrit, when they were on patrol, inspecting a suspected weapons site.
The two wounded were evacuated to a medical treatment facility. (Albawaba.com)
