A roadside bomb killed one and wounded another in northern Iraq yesterday. The two were in a Humvee near Tall Afar, about 35 miles west of Mosul. The vehicle was part of a convoy returning to Forward Operating Base Fulda, the 1st Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment’s headquarters.

Earlier, another bomb struck a Stryker near Amarkan, a village about 18 miles southeast of Mosul. The Stryker suffered minor damage but was driven back to Mosul. No one was injured.
