Two Danish soldiers wounded in Iraq

Two members of Denmark's 500-strong contingent in southern Iraq were lightly wounded when a roadside bomb exploded as they drove past, the Danish army said Friday.

The incident happened late Thursday in a suburb of Basra, where the Danish troops are based. The soldiers were treated at the British military hospital in Basra, and later released, according to the AP.

"Roadside bombs are the terrorists' preferred weapons in southern Iraq," the army said in a statement.

Last week, a Danish army vehicle was damaged when a roadside bomb exploded in the same neighborhood. Since their deployment in 2003, one Danish soldier has been killed, by friendly fire in August 2003.
