Hospital officials says two civilians are dead and 10-wounded in a series of U-S-led overnight air strikes.

U-S-led forces confirmed one strike this morning which they said severely damaged a building where as many as 15 insurgents were moving weapons on the outskirts of the city. The U-S military says ``a large number of enemy fighters'' are presumed dead. The military says ``multiple measures'' are being taken to ensure no innocent people were around when the strikes hit.
The assault was the latest in weeks of strikes aimed at terrorist-linked groups. Forces are particularly going after militant, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's (AH'-boo MOO'-sahb ahl-zahr-KOW'-eez) network.

While direct contact with flood water won't necessarily harm you -- it does become a health risk when it's consumed indirectly from unwashed hands or gets into an open wound.
