WASSIT / Aswat al-Iraq: A US Army patrol has come under an explosive charge blast west of Kut, the center of southern Iraq Province of Wassit on Wednesday night, but losses were not known, a Wassit Police source reported on Thursday.
 
"An explosive charge blew off against a US Army patrol on its way to Delta base, used by the American forces as their headquarters, 7 km to the west of Kut on Wednesday evening," the police source told Aswat lraq news agency.
 
He said the US forces imposed a security cordon around the venue of the blast, whilst the police forces began investigation searching for the attackers.
Aswat al-Iraq, meanwhile, failed to get a US Army comment on the incident.
Kut, the center of Wassit Province, is 180 km to the southeast of Baghdad.
