Nine Iraqi soldiers killed in roadside bomb blast


Nine Iraqi soldiers were killed on Wednesday and six people wounded, including five soldiers, when a roadside bomb destroyed a bus west of the volatile northern city of Mosul, police and army sources said.

The soldiers were off-duty and on their way to spend leisure time at their homes, said a police source in Mosul, considered al Qaeda in Iraq’s last urban stronghold, and an army source in the joint coordination office of Nineveh province.
