A roadside bomb missed a police patrol in Baghdad but killed three Iraqi civilians and wounded four more on Saturday, police said. The victims were in two cars that were struck by the blast at 8:45 a.m. on a highway in Baghdad's eastern Ghadir area, said Lt. Ali Abbas. Another roadside bomb exploded at 8 a.m. on a highway in eastern Baghdad, killing an American soldier from the Multi-National Division-Baghdad, as well as two Iraqi policemen guarding an oil tanker and wounding three others, Lt. Bilal Ali Majid said. The death takes the number of US personnel killed in Iraq to at least 2,273 since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
