U.S. forces attack suspected militants in Fallujah; two American soldiers killed in Samarra
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) U.S. forces launched a ''precision attack'' Friday against a suspected gathering of insurgents outside a house in the volatile city of Fallujah, the U.S. military said.

The attack did not kill anyone but wounded five civilians, including three children, said Dr. Kamal Al-Ani, a hospital official. The U.S. military did not indicate if there were any casualties. Witnesses denied the house was harboring militants.

Also Friday, the military announced the deaths of two U.S. soldiers in a roadside bomb attack Thursday near Samarra, 60 miles north of Baghdad. A third soldier was wounded in the explosion.

The military also said a van carrying Iraqi civilians collided with a U.S. tank Thursday night near Baghdad, killing nine people and injuring 10 all civilians. Iraqis said 18 were injured, and that all the dead, including one child, were from the same family, which was returning to Baghdad from a wedding party in Tarmiyah, 30 miles to the north.

A roadside bomb Friday wounded a bus driver and eight passengers including a pregnant woman and two children in Baghdad's northern suburb of Toubechi, police Lt. Rajab Saleh said. Saleh said the bus driver ignored police warnings not to enter the area.
