MND-B Troops Hit by Roadside Bomb

By SOP newswire

BAGHDAD – An improvised explosive device detonated near a Multi-National Division - Baghdad patrol, killing one Soldier southwest of the Iraqi capital Jan. 1. 

 

The combined patrol was moving through a village south of Baghdad talking to residents about the sectarian violence in the area. 

As the patrol conducted their mission, a roadside bomb exploded near one of their vehicles, killing one Soldier and wounding three others, including an interpreter.

In the past two weeks, this same unit has discovered three roadside bombs in their area of operation, calling explosive ordnance teams to dispose of these explosives, thus allowing coalition forces and Iraqi security forces to move freely on the route.

 

The deceased Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
