U.S. Soldier, Iraqi Interpreter Killed
Monday, July 21, 2003
BAGHDAD, Iraq - A roadside bomb blasted a U.S. convoy in north Baghdad on Monday, killing an American soldier and his Iraqi interpreter, the military reported.
The bomb attack wounded three other soldiers from the 1st Armored Division, and an Iraqi bystander helped pull the Americans from their Humvees, saving the life of at least one of them, the military said.
The death brought to 152 the number of U.S. troops killed in action since the March 20 start of war — five more than during the 1991 Gulf War.
