Witnesses: U.S. soldier shoots Iraqi official
    #2090190 - 11/10/03 07:44 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Baghdad, Iraq-(AP) -- The U.S. military is revealing more details about a shooting incident in the Iraqi capital, but there's no official word on who was shot.

Residents of a neighborhood in eastern Baghdad say a U.S. soldier shot and killed the head of the district's U.S.-appointed municipal council yesterday.

They say the Iraqi official (Muhanad al-Kaadi) was shot after arguing with a U.S. guard posted at the entrance to the municipal building.

One resident says the guard apparently didn't recognize the Iraqi official when he tried to enter the building.

Here's another article...

(CBS/AP) America's top general in the Middle East has warned community leaders that the U.S. military will use stern measures unless they curb attacks against coalition forces, an Iraqi who attended the weekend meeting said Monday.

Gen. John Abizaid, chief of the U.S. Central Command, delivered the warning Saturday to tribal sheiks and mayors in the "Sunni Triangle" city of Ramadi west of Baghdad, according to Fallujah Mayor Taha Bedawi.

"We have the capabilities and equipment," Bedawi quoted the general as saying.

The warning was another sign of a "get tough" campaign against insurgents, who have accelerated attacks against U.S. and coalition forces in recent weeks. U.S. forces had eased off on raids and other offensive measures during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which began Oct. 27, to avoid offending religious sensitivities.

Hours after Abizaid's warning, U.S. jets dropped three 500-pound bombs in the Fallujah area late Saturday after three paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division were wounded in an ambush. There was no report of casualties from the bombing, which appeared aimed primarily at intimidating local residents.

"Neither America, nor the father of America, scares us," a local resident, Najih Latif Abbas, said. "Iraqi men are striking at Americans and they retaliate by terrifying our children."

In other developments:

The U.S. military said insurgents struck again late Sunday, firing a rocket-propelled grenade at a military police convoy near Iskandariya, 40 miles south of Baghdad and killing a soldier from the 18th Military Police Brigade.

Newsweek reports Vice President Dick Cheney forcefully pressed for military action against Saddam Hussein from an early date, hunting for intelligence to back his case that Iraq posed an imminent threat.

In Mosul, a senior oil official was injured and his son killed when assailants opened fire at their car in the northern city on Monday, his family said.

A spokeswoman for French President Jacques Chirac said France believes the growing number of attacks on coalition forces underlines the need for a quick transfer of power to the Iraqis. Coalition officials, however, maintain that power should be transferred only after the Iraqis have drafted and approved a new constitution and elected a democratic government.

The soldier killed Sunday was the 37th American service member to die in Iraq this month and the 151st killed in action since President declared an end to major combat May 1. One hundred others have died outside of combat. Since the war began, 389 Americans and 56 foreign troops have died.
