  • Four U.S. civilians killed in Iraq (Residents hang bodies from bridge)

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/meast/...ain/index.html

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Suspected insurgents killed four American civilian contractors in a grenade attack Wednesday in central Iraq, U.S. officials said.

    Cheering residents in Fallujah pulled charred bodies from burning vehicles and hung them from a Euphrates River bridge.

    Crowds gathered around the vehicles and dragged at least one of the bodies through the streets, witnesses said.

    Residents pulled another body from one of the cars and beat it with sticks.

    Also in the Fallujah region, five American soldiers died in a roadside bombing near Habbaniya, the U.S. military said.

    The fatalities bring the U.S. military death toll in Iraq to 600, 408 of them in hostile action.

    In the attack on the civilians, witnesses said two Mitsubishi vehicles left a military base east of Fallujah to make their way into the city, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Baghdad.

    The vehicles turned onto a Fallujah street as men -- whose faces were covered by headscarves -- split into two groups and threw hand grenades at the cars, witnesses said.

    The assailants then sprayed the burning cars with small-arms fire.

    Video showed crowds chanting and cheering at the scene, with charred corpses hanging from the bridge over the Euphrates.

    The U.S. State Department said the U.S. citizens worked for a company contracted by the coalition to work in Iraq.

    Fallujah is part of al Anbar province in the "Sunni Triangle," a region north and west of the capital that has been a hotbed of opposition to the U.S. presence.

    The White House condemned the "horriffic attacks" by people "trying to prevent democracy from moving forward," spokesman Scott McClellan said.

    A changeover of power from the 82nd Airborne Division to the Marines is under way in al Anbar.

    "There's a small core element [in Fallujah] that doesn't seem to get it," said Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, an Army spokesman who confirmed the four killed in the two-vehicle convoy were not military personnel.

    Coalition Provisional Authority spokesman Dan Senor said those who exulted over the attack "are not people we are here to help. They are people who have a much different vision for the future of Iraq and the overwhelming majority of Iraqis."

    Also Wednesday, two bodyguards for the governor of Diala province and three civilians were wounded in Baqubah, north of Baghdad, when an attacker pulled a car up beside the governor's car and detonated a bomb, Kimmitt said.

    The bomb damaged vehicles and a building, but the governor was unharmed, he said.

    In other violence Wednesday, three British troops were wounded when an improvised explosive device detonated near the southern Iraqi city of Basra, a British Defense Ministry spokesman said.

    Spokesman Paul Sykes said the troops are receiving medical treatment. One of them was seriously injured, Sykes said, but he didn't know the exact nature of the wounds.

    In northern Iraq, U.S. soldiers and Iraqi police detained 20 people Tuesday suspected of anti-coalition activities:


    Soldiers from the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division and Iraqi police detained 10 people in Mosul. Iraqi police in Mosul also apprehended two people wanted in connection with a drive-by shooting.


    Soldiers from 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment detained five suspects speeding away from the scene of a rocket attack in Hammam Al Alil near Mosul. The soldiers detained two suspects after searching door-to-door in Hammam Al Alil. Also in Hammam Al Alil, soldiers detained one suspect at a traffic control point.

    CNN's Kevin Flower, Melissa Gray in London, Sue Kroll, Vivian Paulsen and Auday Sadik contributed to this report.

                  Who would have thought the citizens of an occupied country would feel resentment towards the army that was occupying them and respond with guerilla tactics and suicide attacks?


                  Oh, wait. Everybody.

                        I totally agree, but attacking civilians in such a brutal manner? This has me speechless.....the civilians are only there to help things along.. not oppress. Though the Iraqi's might not know how to distiniguish between soldiers and what not.

                        Then you can expect more terrorist attacks, and more world resentment.

                        Not comparable. The Canadian troops there now were part of a coalition that attacked the Taliban in RESPONSE to them refusing to give up Osama bin Laden. The coalition was responding to a deadly attack (Sept 11) rather than invading a country on false pretenses.

                            the violence comes from certain areas but make no mistake there are more pro-american iraqis than anti-american ones

                            we were under false pretenses, but there's not evidence that we knew it...

                            and now it's our job to do what we can to restore the country from anarchy

                            Anyone that is against the US on THIS issue is completely out of their minds anyway... It'd be the same if we got in a war with china and chinese americans were attacked in the US... they're civilians you fuckin idiots... people who were not occupying but there working or trying to help reconstruction...

                            those fuckin pigs over there that did this are pissed cause they won't have power in a democracy since they're not a large enough part of the population so instead they want a religiously ruled government where you can get stoned to death if you have sex out of marriage...

                            put it this way

                            bush is criticized more than saddam hussein... the man who gassed 60,000 of his own people... idiot anti-americanism
