The US military has announced that it has changed their tactics of dealing with roadside bombs.
Rather than moving on after the bombing, they now try to engage the persons who may have set off the bomb.

This led to an incident late Saturday night, in which a bombing at a police checkpoint in Yussifiyah was follwed by a shootout that killed at least two policemen and three civilians.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - American troops opened fire after their convoy was struck by a roadside bomb at a checkpoint south of Baghdad, killing at least two policemen and three civilians, police said Sunday....

...U.S. officials had no immediate comment about the shooting at the checkpoint, which occurred late Saturday. Interior Ministry spokesman Col. Adnan Abdul-Rahman said a U.S. convoy was hit by a roadside bomb near a police checkpoint in Yussifiyah, nine miles south of Baghdad, and troops opened fire, killing two police and three civilians.


The reaction of the soldiers in this case are understandable but it might make their relationship with the Iraqi police force and civilians more difficult as they get caught in the crossfire.
