(Baghdad, Iraq-AP) Jan. 24, 2004 - Three bombings in Iraq Saturday have left five Americans and four Iraqis dead.
The attacks all occurred in the volatile Sunni Triangle west of Baghdad, where resistance to the American occupation has been strongest.
The US command says three soldiers were killed and six others wounded when a vehicle exploded at a checkpoint near a bridge in Khaldiyah.
Witnesses say a four-wheel-drive vehicle drove up to the checkpoint and exploded in front of a US Army Humvee trying to block it. A doctor says at least eight Iraqis were injured, six of them women.
Earlier, two US soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb that struck their convoy near Fallujah.
And four Iraqis were killed by a truck bomb that went off in Samarra, narrowly missing an American convoy. About 40 people were wounded in that attack.
