Attacks Kill Six Troops in Iraq , 30 Iraqis
Attacks Kill Six Troops in Iraq
Violence Also Claims At Least 30 Iraqis

BAGHDAD, April 24 -- Six members of the U.S.-led coalition were killed in two attacks and more than 30 Iraqis -- including policemen, bus passengers and flea-market shoppers -- died in multiple incidents Saturday during an especially violent day in the bloodiest month since the war in Iraq began last year.

Two rockets fired from a truck hit a U.S. military base north of the capital, killing four U.S. soldiers, officials said. The 5 a.m. attack wounded seven soldiers, including four who are in critical condition. U.S. helicopter gunships then destroyed the truck.

Later Saturday, three boats attacked Iraqi oil terminals in the Persian Gulf, near the southern city of Basra, killing two members of the U.S.-led forces and wounding four in what appeared to be suicide attacks, the military reported. The terminals were not damaged. The Associated Press reported that the casualties were U.S. Navy sailors.

In the northern city of Tikrit, a car bomb exploded in a market near another U.S. military base, killing at least three Iraqis. Fourteen civilians were also killed when a bus traveling near a U.S. military convoy hit a roadside bomb 30 miles south of Baghdad, officials said.

2. Another SA man killed in Iraq, says British army
The Department of Foreign Affairs could throw no light on reports on Thursday morning that a fifth South African has been killed in Iraq. Reports from Basra said a civilian, believed to be South African, was killed in a drive-by shooting in the city earlier in the day.

"We can confirm there was a shooting incident this morning in Basra at approximately 9:15 am (7.15 SA time) and a non-Iraqi civilian has been killed," said Major Ian Clooney, a spokesperson for the British military.

"We believe him to be a South African."

Foreign Affairs spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa could not immediately confirm the death or the person's identity.

9. What's the death count now?
Probably around 351 according to Wolfowitz. Three extinguished Americans equal one American death.
