In nearby Tikrit, Saddam's hometown, two US soldiers were killed late Tuesday in an "indirect fire attack," on their base, a military statement
said. Indirect fire is a military catchall term for mortar and rocket attacks.
Leaflets signed by the shadowy Islamic Army were plastered on shop fronts and walls in Tikrit claiming responsibility for the attack on the base.
"The knights of the Ali bin Abi Taleb Brigade fired a barrage of mortars and rockets last night at the citadel of infidels in the centre of Tikrit,"
said the leaflet.
It is unclear if this was the same group that claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of a Turkish businessman in video footage shown on television
in Dubai on Tuesday.
it looks like they are trying to imitate the Crusaders. tsk tsk. history always come back to haunt the world.
