Baghdad violence leaves 4 dead

October 01, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A bomb in a parked car targeted a restaurant in a mostly Shiite Muslim neighborhood of Baghdad, killing three people and injuring at least six, Iraqi police said.

The U.S. military said a U.S. soldier was killed by small-arms fire in north Baghdad.

At least 4,176 members of the U.S. military have died since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to the independent website icasualties.org.

The attacks occurred as the country's Sunni Arabs marked the start of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which ends the fasting month of Ramadan. The holiday begins today for Shiites in Iraq.
