      column of five armored vehicles and four Humvees in the al-Jazirah
      area on the road that links al-Hadithah with Bayji to the northeast.

      Residents of the al-Jazirah area told Mafkarat al-Islam that about 20
      Iraqi Resistance fighters detonated a bomb that they had planted by
      the side of the road leading to al-Hadithah as a US column was
      passing by. The blast destroyed one Humvee.

      Resistance fighters then fired eight 82mm mortar rounds into the
      column, disabling one armored vehicle and destroying a second
      Humvee. The correspondent said that Resistance fighters then
      directly attacked the column, with light and medium weapons and pipe
      rockets, destroying another American armored vehicle. About 21
      American troops were dead or wounded by the end of the engagement,
      the correspondent reported.

      Witnesses reported that one Iraqi Resistance fighter was martyred
      during the attack and another was wounded but was able to withdraw
      with the other Resistance men before the American reinforcements
      arrived on the scene together with their vehicles and helicopters.
      The US forces then encircled the area and hauled away their wrecked
      vehicles and the bodies of their dead and wounded.
