Multi-National Division – Baghdad PAO

BAGHDAD – Initial reports indicate four Iraqi civilians were killed and six others wounded when a vehicle borne improvised-explosive device detonated in an intersection near the Shrgy market area of eastern Baghdad at approximately 11:30 a.m. April 14.

Soldiers of the Iraqi Army and 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, Multi-National Division – Baghdad, responded to secure the area and assist with caring for the wounded.

“This is an act of desperation and a leading example of how the extremists target innocent Iraqis,” said Col. Allen Batschelet, chief of staff for the 4th Infantry Division and MND-B. “Coalition forces along with our Iraqi brethren remain steadfast in protecting the Iraqi populace.”
