BASRA / Aswat al-Iraq: An Iraqi civilian has been killed and 3 others injured in fire from U.S.
troops following an attack by 7 Katyusha rockets on their base in southern Iraq’s port-city of Basra, a security source said on Wednesday.


“The U.S.
forces have launched an air attack on a group of persons, they claimed to have been armed men, killing one of them and wounding three others, including a woman,” the security source said.


The “attack took place after 7 Katyusha rockets fell on an American base in Basra Airport,” the source noted.
 

The source said that the persons, attacked by the U.S.
raid “were a group of civilian peasants.”

For its part, Aswat al-Iraq news agency tried to contact the American side, but failed.
