US: Soldiers targeting bomber accidentally shoot and kill Iraqi woman

US soldiers accidentally shot and killed an Iraqi woman while targeting a man planting a roadside bomb in Baghdad, the military said Thursday. The soldiers were on a foot patrol Wednesday in northeastern Baghdad when they fired three rounds at the suspect, killing him, according to a statement. The troops then opened fire on another man trying to remove the roadside bomb from the site as a crowd gathered. The military said the man was wounded, along with one of two local women he was using as shields against the soldiers. "After the engagement, the woman died of her wounds," the military said.
