Bomber Kills At Least 25 In Al-Fallujah Hospital

(RFE/RL) May 31, 2007 -- At least 25 people were killed and another 20 wounded by a suicide bomber in the western Iraqi city of Al-Fallujah.

Reports say that a suicide bomber walked up to a queue of young men at a police recruitment center and detonated the bomb.

Al-Fallujah, in the restive Al-Anbar Governorate, is 65 kilometers west of Baghdad.

The U.S. military today reported three more U.S. soldiers killed in separate attacks in and around the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

A roadside bomb killed two soldiers and wounded two others on May 30 in Baghdad.

Another soldier died of wounds suffered in an earlier roadside bombing near the capital.
