BAGHDAD, Iraq, Nov. 15 Two American Black Hawk helicopters collided in midair and crashed Saturday evening in the northern city of Mosul, killing at least 17 of the American soldiers aboard and injuring 5 others, officials said. One other soldier was reported missing.

American officials said the collision occurred when one of the helicopters came under hostile fire from the ground and swerved upward to avoid it, driving its rotor into the second helicopter.

The Black Hawks, traveling after sunset, went down in a residential neighborhood on the western side of the city. It was unclear Saturday evening if there were any casualties among Iraqis living in the neighborhood where the crash occurred

sad:

sorry, no names published yet, maybe Scarletwine can add them later

MOSUL, Iraq (AP) - Attackers slit the throats of two American soldiers who were waiting in traffic in this northern Iraqi city on Sunday, witnesses said. Another soldier was killed in a roadside bombing north of Baghdad.

The bodies of the two male soldiers could be seen lying in the street next to their vehicle in Mosul's Ras al-Jadda district with their throats cut. The U.S. command in Baghdad said it had no information on the incident.

A 4th Infantry Division soldier was killed Sunday and two others were wounded when a roadside bomb exploded in Baqouba, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad, the military said.

U.S. officials have warned of more attacks against coalition forces as the Islamic holy month of Ramadan nears its end Tuesday.

Three U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq

Sunday, November 23, 2003 Posted: 7:48 PM EST (0048 GMT)


BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Three U.S. soldiers were killed Sunday in separate attacks on their military convoys in Iraq, according to the U.S. military.


Two soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division were killed Sunday when their convoy came under attack by small-arms fire in the northern town of Mosul, according to a U.S. Army spokesman.

After the deaths, witnesses told CNN the soldiers had their throats cut and were stripped of personal effects after they had been shot and wounded while riding in a civilian vehicle. But further investigation by CNN casts doubt on the allegations.

Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt would not comment on the details of the incident. "We have an ongoing investigation, and we're not going to get ghoulish about this."

Another U.S. soldier was killed and two were wounded Sunday morning near Ba'qubah, north of Baghdad, when a military convoy hit a roadside bomb, according to a spokesman for the 4th Infantry Division.

The wounded soldiers are in a stable condition, the spokesman said.

In addition, vehicle accidents claimed the lives of three other soldiers Friday and Saturday, and Iraqi sources said an Iraqi police colonel charged with security at oil installations was shot and killed in northern Iraq.

The deaths bring the total number of U.S. soldiers killed in the Iraq war to 432 -- 300 of them under hostile conditions.

Since May 1, when President Bush declared the end of major combat operations, 290 U.S. troops have died, 185 from hostile fire.

Despite the losses, Kimmitt said the guerrilla attacks are not having a major impact on the occupation forces' mission in Iraq.

"This is a enemy that cannot defeat us militarily, and in engagement after engagement, we see the enemy breaking off, running away," he told reporters.

No reliable estimate of Iraqi deaths over the course of the conflict is available. The Associated Press reported an estimated 3,240 civilian Iraqi deaths between March 20 and April 20, but the AP said the figure was based on records of only half of Iraq's hospitals and that the actual number was thought to be significantly higher.
Civilian flights suspended after missile attack

U.S. authorities in Iraq suspended civilian flights into Baghdad's international airport Sunday after a cargo plane was damaged by a surface-to-air missile over the weekend.

Military air traffic into Baghdad will continue, Coalition Provisional Authority spokesman Dan Senor said.

A DHL flight was struck by a surface-to-air missile shortly after takeoff Saturday from Baghdad, military officials said. The missile struck one of the jet's engines, and the aircraft returned safely to the airport, its left wing ablaze. No one was hurt. (Full story)

The U.S. Air Force is conducting an investigation into the attack, Kimmitt said.

DHL and passenger carrier Royal Jordanian Airlines are the only companies flying into Baghdad.
Other Developments

? An explosion at an oil compound near the northern city of Kirkuk injured four employees Saturday night, according to Iraqi Northern Oil Co. spokesman Mike McAleer. A preliminary investigation indicated that the blast at the oil company's Baba Cultural Social Club was caused by a bomb, McAleer said.

? Iraqi civilians flagged down an Iraqi Railroad train early Sunday to prevent it from approaching an improvised explosive device placed on the tracks near the town of Iskandariyah, south of Baghdad. Central Command said the bomb was made of three 155mm artillery rounds linked together. An ordnance disposal team attached to the 82nd Airborne Division disarmed the device, and the rail line reopened.

-- CNN correspondents Jane Arraf and Walter Rodgers contributed to this report.

U.S. Soldier Killed in Iraq Hours After Bush Visit
By Andrew Marshall

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A mortar attack on a U.S. base in Iraq killed an American soldier on Friday, hours after President Bush made a secret visit to Baghdad to spend Thanksgiving with U.S. troops fighting to end a guerrilla war.

A military spokeswoman said the soldier was killed when a mortar bomb hit the headquarters of the 101st Airborne Division in the northern city of Mosul. Since Bush declared major combat over on May 1, 185 U.S. soldiers have been killed in action.

Two U.S. Soldiers Killed in Western Iraq
Sun Nov 30, 5:56 AM ET

By SLOBODAN LEKIC, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Guerrillas killed two U.S. soldiers and wounded a third in an ambush in western Iraq , a military statement said on Sunday. A day earlier, seven Spanish intelligence agents and two Japanese diplomats died in separate attacks near Baghdad.

With the latest deaths, guerrillas have killed 106 coalition troops in Iraq in November, with 79 American soldiers slain along with 25 other allied soldiers. It has been the bloodiest month of the war that began March 20.

A military statement said the U.S. troops were killed when a task force from the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment was hit Saturday by rocket-propelled grenades and automatic fire east of the border town of Husaybah, 180 miles northwest of Baghdad.

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- A U.S. soldier was reported killed south of Samarra on Tuesday, as U.S. and Iraqi authorities pressed the debate about how many Iraqis were killed when U.S. forces repelled simultaneous ambushes during the weekend.

The battles at Samarra -- about 120 km (75 miles) north of Baghdad -- were described as intense, with small-arms fire erupting from windows, roofs, alleyways and vehicles, escalating into rocket-propelled grenade and mortar attacks.

The soldier with the 4th Infantry Division was killed when his convoy struck an improvised explosive device south of Samarra, military officials said. There were no further details.

AP: Bremer Predicts More Attacks in Iraq
By JEFFREY SCHAEFFER, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi guerrillas will step up attacks in the next few months in an attempt to thwart a transfer of sovereignty from the occupation authority to a new Iraqi government, the top U.S. administrator in Iraq said Friday.

But L. Paul Bremer said in an interview with Associated Press Television News that U.S. forces were getting better intelligence in the fight against insurgents who stage attacks daily. Hours before he spoke, a roadside bomb hit a U.S. military convoy in Baghdad, killing one soldier. Two Iraqi civilians also died and 13 were wounded.

Iraq Suicide Blast Kills 1 U.S. Soldier

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A car bomb driven by a suicide bomber blew up outside a U.S. Army base in the town of Ramadi on Thursday, killing one soldier and injuring 14 others.

The bomb was concealed in a truck that was delivering furniture to the base, and three Iraqis in the vehicle died in the explosion, a military spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity.

Three wounded soldiers were evacuated to a combat hospital and the other 11 injured were treated and returned to duty, the spokeswoman said.

The bomb detonated just outside the gate of the Army's "Champion Base" in Ramadi, 100 kilometers (60 miles) west of Baghdad.
