US military imposes curfew in central Samarra
An indefinite curfew was imposed Wednesday for all vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the central Iraqi city of Samarra, following an attack on a US convoy in the area, the US military and Iraqi police said.

"There is currently, and until further notice, no vehicle or pedestrian activity allowed in Samarra," said a spokesman for Task Force Liberty.

The insurgent-riddled Samarra, about 95 kilometers (60 miles) north of Baghdad, is part of the Sunni Triangle north of Baghdad, a center of the anti-American insurgency.

Earlier in the day, a bomb had exploded near a US Army patrol in central Iraq, killing one soldier and wounding five others, the US command said.
