U.S. military still hunting for three missing soldiers
font size    

U.S. and Iraqi soldiers backed by aircraft were still hunting for three American soldiers who went missing after an attack on U.S. soldiers in area south of Baghdad on Saturday, the U.S. military said on Sunday.

"We will make every effort available to find our three missing soldiers," Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, the chief military spokesman for U.S. forces in Iraq, said in a news conference.

Insurgents attacked a patrol of seven U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter in an area 20 km west of Mahmoudiyah town south of Baghdad early on Saturday, killing four U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter. Three others were missing after the raid.

Caldwell told reporters that the U.S. military had identified the bodies of three U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter.

"We have identified four of the five bodies and among them is the Iraqi interpreter, but the military was still working to identify the fifth body," Caldwell said.

Mahmoudiyah, some 30 km south of Baghdad, is a stronghold for Sunni insurgents and is part of an area code-named "Triangle of Death" because of the frequent insurgent attacks.
