as-Salam 'alaykum!

Just a footnote to your story of the eight dead in the assault in Iraq yesterday.

Yes, al-Quds al-Arabi quoting journalists and eyewitnesses said there were eight Americans killed when a US military transport vehicle carrying 10 Americans apparently hit a mine and burst into flames, simultaneously coming under machinegun fire. It took place in a town named Khalidiyya. (The US media with their usual ineptness were calling the place Kaldya, apparently.) The paper also reported (and carried photographs to show) that the incident was followed by pro-Saddam demonstrations.

In addition, al-Quds al-Arabi reported that Thursday saw attacks on American forces in al-Fallujah, al-Mosul, and Baghdad and guerrillas also set an oil pipeline alight in the north of the country.
