Saturday: 2 Iraqis Killed, 6 Wounded

At least two Iraqis were killed and six more were wounded on a quiet news day in Iraq. No Coalition deaths were reported. Meanwhile, Iraq promises to not forcibly evict Iranians from Camp Ashraf. Also, the Iraqi government is trying to rein in journalists by threatening fines for certain coverage of Iraqi elections.

In Tuz Khormato, a bomb killed an Iraqi soldier and wounded three more. Two brothers were abducted outside of town on a highway leading to Suleiman Beg.

U.S. forces killed a man in Amara. The soldiers believed the man was attempting to plant a bomb, but apparently he was eating a meal instead.

In Baghdad, three civilians were wounded during a bombing in Tayaran Square. Sixteen suspects were detained and several bombs were defused. Ten hand grenades were found in a downtown garbage can.

In Mosul, two separate bombs left no casualties. A police officer was kidnapped.

Two suspects were detained in Tal Afar.

Kurdish security forces captured two suspects in Tareeq Baghdad, Kirkuk province.

An arms cache was found near Makhmour.

Iranian refugees will not be forcibly evicted from their homes in Camp Ashraf, said the U.S. ambassador. The group, which contains members of the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran, was welcomed into Iraq during the Saddam Hussein era and has been a source of friction between the neighboring countries. They are now under the protection of U.S. forces.
