US forces under mortar fire in Baaquba: witnesses
(AFP)

22 September 2003



BAAQUBA, Iraq - About 20 mortar bombs were fired at US forces on the edge of the northern Iraqi town of Baaquba, witnesses said on Monday.


The attack took place about 11:00 pm on Sunday night (1900 GMT), said Amar Abdulakarim, 30, and Hussein Abdullah, 28.

However they could not provide any estimate of possible casualties or damage at the US headquarters some five kilometres (three miles) outside Baaquba.

The US army said it could offer no immediate comment on the report from the town 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the capital. (snip/...)
