Iraqi civilians killed in blast

Two Iraqi civilians were killed on Friday by a landmine on a road near a US base north of Baghdad, according to a forensic expert at the Baquba hospital.

    Landmines often blow up on unsuspecting people and vehicles

    "The two civilians, who are not older than 30 and are from Baghdad, were heading to Dali Abbas, a hunting area, when the mine exploded," said Hussein Ali, at the hospital, 60 km north of the capital.

      

    He said the road the two were using passes near a US base.

     

    Iraqi resistance fighters have routinely used mines to successfully target US military convoys.
