Three US soldiers, four Iraqis killed in Diwaniyah clash
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/2004...

BAGHDAD (AFP) - Three US soldiers and four Iraqis were killed during clashes between American forces and backers of wanted Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr near the southern city of Diwaniyah, the army and a Sadr spokesman said.


"Three soldiers travelling in a 1st Armored Division convoy were killed during a small arms ambush" at around 7:00 pm (1500 GMT) on Saturday, the military said in a statement.


A spokesman for Sadr said a militiaman and three other Iraqis were killed in the firefight between supporters of the radical cleric and coalition troops.


A US convoy was attacked near a Spanish base in Diwaniyah and returned fire, according to a spokesman for Spain's forces in the coalition. An AFP correspondent said an armoured vehicle and several shops were still burning Sunday.
