3 U.S. Soldiers Killed By Bomb

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A roadside bomb attack killed three American soldiers in a convoy on the day of a country-wide offensive by U.S. troops and Iraqi soldiers against Sunni insurgents and suspected extremists.

The attack happened at around 10 p.m. Tuesday in eastern Baghdad, a military statement said. The names of the soldiers were withheld pending notification of their families. No further details of the incident were disclosed.

It wasn't immediately clear if the soldiers were part of the massive offensive Tuesday, which was launched ahead of Ramadan in an apparent attempt at preventing a repeat of the insurgent violence that took place at the start of last year's Muslim holy month. Ramadan is expected to start at week's end.
