Developments in Iraq on Tuesday
Four to five mortar rounds landed near Baghdad's Green Zone, the site of Iraq's interim government and the U.S. and British embassies. One hit Salhiya, a nearby neighborhood, killing one garbage collector as he cleared trash and wounding another, residents said. The mortar fire also wounded 14 U.S. soldiers, 11 of whom later returned to duty.
Gunmen assassinated the assistant director of Mahmoudiya Hospital. Assailants in a car shot Dr. Qassem el-Obaidi as he was driving home from work late Monday, hospital director Dr. Daoud al-Ta'i said.
In the city of Baqouba, a suicide bomber blew up a car but did not cause any other casualties, Iraqi officials said. Associated Press Television News footage showed mangled wreckage of the car and the bomber's dismembered body.
Iraqi police arrested two people driving a truck filled with 1,000 mortars and 250 anti-tank mines near the city of Kut, south of Baghdad, said police Col. Ali Ribih Najim.
