Gunmen blew up a small Shi'ite mosque northeast of Baghdad on Sunday, and the US military reported the death of three American soldiers. The status of the crew of a US helicopter that crashed southwest of Baghdad remained unclear. Police reported the discovery of nearly 40 more bodies in several neighborhoods of Baghdad, apparent victims of revenge killings between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims. The continued violence put more pressure on Iraqi politicians to form a new government to quell sectarian killings and halt sectarian death squads.
