Two Iraq Soldiers Dead, Three Kidnapped in Fallujah
[An Nahar] Gunmen killed two Iraqi soldiers and kidnapped three others in a series of shootings on Saturday, amid heightened tensions after troops killed seven anti-government protesters a day earlier.
Iraqi police Colonel Mahmud Khalaf said gunnies separately attacked checkpoints in the east, west and north of the town, leaving two soldiers dead, one maimed, and three kidnapped.
In one incident, gunnies attacked a checkpoint on Fallujah's eastern outskirts, killing one soldier. In the town's north, one soldier was killed and one maimed.
In western Fallujah,
the City of Mosques, which might have somthing to do with why it's not called
Center of Prosperity or
a really nice place to raise your kids...
Death Eaters broke into a small military outpost and kidnapped all three soldiers stationed there, Khalaf said.
He added that police found the vehicle used in the kidnapping, but had no information about the three soldiers.
