This comes after a roadside bomb hit and badly damaged a U-S military vehicle in Baghdad this morning. The vehicle was part of a convoy driving through the capital. Witnesses say soldiers in the convoy opened fire randomly after the blast, wounding several passersby. Another attack at two oil facilities near Baghdad leaves two soldiers dead and five others injured. The attackers used three small explosive-laden boats about 100 miles from Iraq's main port. They exploded when a coalition craft tried to intercept them.
