MOSUL, Iraq (AP) - Attackers slit the throats of two American
soldiers who were waiting in traffic in this northern Iraqi city on
Sunday, witnesses said. Another soldier was killed in a roadside
bombing north of Baghdad.

Elsewhere, three American civilian contractors were wounded in an
explosion in the northern oil center Kirkuk. First reports said the
blast was from a mortar, but Lt. Col. Matt Croke said officials
later concluded it was a bomb.

The killings occurred after U.S. helicopter gunships struck targets
in central Iraq on Sunday, according to other witnesses.

The bodies of the two male soldiers could be seen lying in the
street next to their vehicle in Mosul's Ras al-Jadda district with
their throats cut. The U.S. command in Baghdad said it had no
information on the incident.
