US soldiers wounded in Iraq

Four US soldiers were wounded in two separate incidents in Iraq as resistance fighters continued their attacks on occupation forces.

    The occupation forces have come under intermittent attacks

    A US military spokesman said on Wednesday that three soldiers from the 1st Armoured Division were injured when their convoy came under attack at al-Dorah on the southern outskirts of capital Baghdad on Tuesday night.

    Another soldier from the 4th Infantry Division was wounded when his convoy was hit by rocket-propelled grenades at Balad, in the north of Baghdad.

    Up to 75 US soldiers have been killed in Iraq since US President George Bush declared major combat over on 1 May.
