The attacks on a souvenir bazaar and a cafe frequented by &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/accidents/21/93/374/12445_Iraq.html ' target=_blank>U.S. troops and civilians were the first suicide bombings inside what is supposed to be the safest place in Iraq. The country's interim government immediately vowed to strike back.

Officials said 18 people were wounded, including three U.S. military personnel and a U.S. civilian. One Iraqi was among the dead. The nationalities of the others are not yet known.
