Iraq: Rocket attack on main US base kills 2 troops, wounds 38
10/11/2007
A rocket or mortar attack on the main US base near Baghdad killed two members of the US-led coalition forces and wounded 40 people, the military said Thursday. The attack occurred Wednesday at the Camp Victory, a sprawling garrison that houses the headquarters of American forces in Iraq, according to a statement. Two coalition force members were killed and 38 wounded, the military said. It also said two "third country nationals" were wounded. It did not identity them further, but military spokesman Lt. Col. Rudolph Burwell said the term usually refers to foreign contractors and not Iraqis or Americans. The attack is under investigation, the statement said.
