US troops wounded in attack on convoy near Fallujah: witnesses
FALLUJAH, Iraq (AFP) -
An unknown number of US troops were wounded when assailants fired
several rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) at a US convoy west of the
rebel city of Fallujah, witnesses said.
"Several rockets were fired on a convoy and two jeeps and three
armoured personnel carriers caught fire," witness Mohammad Hamad
al-Halboussi told AFP at the scene.
"The attackers ran away and then came back to open fire with
Kalashnikovs and pistols on the American soldiers," he added.
The attack, which began at 7:00 am (0300 GMT), and the subsequent gun
battle lasted about 90 minutes, in the village of Albu Alwan, seven
kilometres (four miles) west of Fallujah, said Majid Ibrahim Allawi,
adding that three Iraqi men were arrested.
"My answer is: Bring them on."
