Iraqi Ambassador: 3 US Helicopters Shot down over Iraq - 21 March, 2003 - News

Iraqi Ambassador to Russia Abbas Khalaf has today announced that 3 US helicopters were downed over Iraq last night. He said that 12 British and 4 US soldiers were killed in the incidents. The US claims that the helicopter crash which killed 16 people took place over Kuwait and was the result of a technical failure.

Khalaf also announced that Iraqi rocket forces launched an attack on the US air base in Kuwait on Thursday and 'dealt it a serious blow.' He said that the US used 70 cruise missiles in its bombardment of Iraq, which wounded 36 people, including women and elderly people. 'This contradicts statements made by the US before the war that there would not be any victims among the civilian population. The announcement about casualties is not anti-American propaganda - we have documentary evidence,' said the ambassador.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
