A suicide car bomber attacked a joint US-Iraqi checkpoint near Fallujah on Saturday, killing five Iraqi soldiers, police said. The suspected insurgent rammed his car into the checkpoint in the town of Saqlawiyah, 75 kilometers (45 miles) west of Baghdad, a police officer said on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media. Saqlawiyah is just north of Fallujah, a city that once was an extremely violent Sunni-Arab insurgent bastion where the charred bodies of four Blackwater security men were hung on a bridge.
