Meanwhile, the remains of the three Americans killed by a U-S bomb in friendly fire incident arrived at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. The flag draped coffins were carried off the transport plane with the kind of respect reserved for war heros and dignitaries. In Afghanistan, U.S. Marines are on high alert after they received a credible threat to their installation in the southern part of the country. Troops fired mortar rounds and scrambled jets just in case of an attack.
