The attack came after American warplanes and tanks attacked militants holed up in Baghdad's Sadr City neighborhood overnight. The soldiers were evacuated to a medical facility following the attack, but it is not known whether they were actually inside their *armored vehicle* when the bomb went off. Sadr City remains a stronghold of radical Shiite cleric *Muqtada al-Sadr* --whose radical Army is targeted by U-S forces.
