Iraq violence kills 12 Americans
http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/news/12698774....

BAGHDAD, Iraq Twelve more Americans have been killed in insurgent attacks across Iraq, military and diplomatic sources said Tuesday.

Eight were members of the armed forces, raising to 1,907 the number of U.S. service members who have died in the country since the invasion.

The dead included an embassy official and three security contractors killed Monday morning in a suicide car bombing in the northern city of Mosul.

Witnesses in Mosul said a lone driver smashed his red sedan into the second vehicle in a convoy of three sport-utility vehicles, triggering a fiery explosion. Security forces immediately cordoned the area and administered first aid, but the contractors and an assistant regional security officer, Stephen Eric Sullivan, died, a U.S. official in Baghdad said.
