CNN shows Iraqis crowd cheering US dead soldier.


BAGHDAD, Iraq (July 16) -- A U.S. soldier, an 8-year-old Iraqi child, and a pro-American mayor and his son were killed Wednesday as pro-Saddam Hussein insurgents unleashed a string of violent attacks on the eve of a recently banned Baath Party holiday.

The soldier was killed in a rocket-propelled grenade attack on a supply convoy west of Baghdad near the Abu Ghraib prison, a U.S. military spokesman said.

The grenade blasted into the soldier's truck, hurling him out, as the 20-vehicle convoy passed along a main highway Wednesday morning. Soldiers at first believed a bomb was remotely detonated as the convoy passed.

CNN showed footage of Iraqis cheering at the attack scene.
