A roadside bomb targeted a US military convoy Wednesday in Baghdad, killing an Iraqi bystander and wounding three others, police said as attack helicopters buzzed over central Baghdad. The explosion, which occurred shortly after 3 p.m. in the predominantly Shi'ite neighborhood of Karradah, also damaged a Humvee, a police officer said. The US military had no immediate comment and no American casualties were reported. US soldiers quickly sealed off the area and US Apache helicopters circled the area to provide support. Another roadside bomb targeted an American convoy in eastern Baghdad, police said, but no casualties were reported. In northern Iraq, a suicide bomber slammed his minibus into blast walls around the offices of a key Kurdish political party, killing a local party official and a guard, and wounding five other guards, the party said.
