Car bomb kills one; three U.S. soldiers die

BAGHDAD – A car bomb exploded in a suicide attack just outside Mosul University in northern Iraq on Monday, killing a professor and wounding six other people, including four students, said Brig. Gen. Mohammed al-Wagaa, the deputy police chief in Nineveh province. A second car bomb did not cause any casualties, he said.

Also in Mosul, gunmen kidnapped the head of the Ibn Sina educational hospital, Hisham al-Qazaz, according to other doctors at the hospital. Qazaz was on his way to the market when he was grabbed, said Baha Aldeen al-Bakri, another physician.

The U.S. military on Monday reported the deaths of three soldiers.

One was killed by gunfire Sunday in eastern Baghdad while on a combat operation. In central Baghdad on Sunday, another soldier was killed and 10 were injured while on a combat mission, the U.S. military said.

Two Iraqi soldiers, an interpreter and another Iraqi also were injured.

A third American soldier died and another was wounded in Qadisiyah province, south of Baghdad, in what the military called a noncombat incident.
