Large Explosions Rock Central Baghdad; at Least 1 American Soldier Wounded
http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGBXR2W1OUD.html

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Insurgents fired rockets from an apartment house Tuesday toward a police station and other buildings in central Baghdad, triggering huge explosions and wounding at least one American soldier, witnesses and officials said.


The rockets missed the police station but hit another building and a parking lot. Hassan Joma, an Iraqi anti-terror official, said two U.S. soldiers on the roof of the building were wounded.

Police sealed off nearby Saadoun Street, which includes the square where the statue of Saddam Hussein was hauled down April 9, 2003.

2. Just a few dead enders, Saddam loyalists
Please ignore polls showing 82% of Iraqis want the U. S. out of Iraq now. We are there to help the 12% attain representative democracy.
