Bomb kills 14 Iraqis in bus - doctor
http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/L24362416.htm

HASWA, Iraq, April 24 (Reuters) - A roadside bomb killed 14 Iraqis travelling by bus to Baghdad on Saturday and 12 others were wounded, a doctor at a nearby hospital said.

Abbas Wissan al-Shamari, a doctor at the hospital in the town of Iskandariya, 50 km (31 miles) south of Baghdad, said the bus was taking people to the capital but he had no immediate further details.

Witnesses said the bus was driving just ahead of a convoy of six U.S. military vehicles when the roadside bomb, a favourite guerrilla weapon against the occupying forces, exploded.

more...Collaberators I bet.

1. No, I insist, you go first
I wonder if there's an accurate count of the Iraqi dead?

2. BUSHCO doesn't want those figures released.
If the US and the rest of the world new these figures, there would be much outcry.

5. The "freedom fighters" must be very proud
I wonder what these innocent on the bus did to deserve this fate at the hands of so-called freedom fighters.
