Babylon: While driving on the wrong road in the Nile region of Babil Province, an Iraqi citizen driving an Opel was killed in a collision with a vehicle belonging to American forces, eyewitnesses have told the Zarwaa Media Network. The incident took place at 7:30 am yesterday morning [September 24th].
U.S. troops remained at the scene to inspect the vehicle, examine documents and generally act aggressively toward the passenger that survived the incident. Two Iraqi bystanders tried to apologize to the American troops and clarify the matter, saying that it was merely a traffic accident. But the Americans were unconcerned and wouldn't listen. Then, after spraying the two bystanders with incendiary materiel, the Americans set the two Iraqis alight and departed in their vehicle, leaving the flames to consume their corpses.
It is worth mentioning that the types of vehicle mentioned [GMC Envoys] are used by American security companies in charge of protecting officials, U.S. Army commanders and the contractors working alongside them.
State authorities have said nothing to the press about the accident, and local authorities have taken no action nor have they launched an investigation into what happened. Due to this atrocious behavior and the fact that the incident coincided with the first day of Ramadan, great anger and congestion reigned over this street in Babel this day.
In a separate incident, two policemen were killed today and five injured as a result of mortar shells that fell on the Jurf al Sakhar police station in Qada al Musib, in the north of the Babil Province. The spokesman for the Babil police command said, "Following an attack comprised of about 20 mortar rounds, unknown gunmen attacked with a heavy barrage of small arms fire that left two policemen dead and seven injured." The spokesman added that "American forces clashed with the gunmen, but they escaped."
It is unknown whether this incident was a reaction to the burning of the two citizens.
