New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 27, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A — Herald-ZeiTUNG — Sunday, July 27, 2003Today Contact Features Editor Brian Grant, 625-9144 ext. 222 World Briefly- Four American soldiers killed, six wounded in Iraq BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) —A grenade attack Saturday killed three U.S. soldiers and wounded four as they guarded a children’s hospital northeast of Baghdad, scuttling hopes a widespread guerrilla insurgency might lose strength after the deaths of Saddam Hussein’s elder sons. Another U.S. soldier died and two others were wounded later in the afternoon when their convoy was attacked west of Baghdad near the Abu Ghraib prison. In Mosul, engineers with the 101st Airborne Division tore down the badly damaged villa where Odai and Qusai Hussein were killed Tuesday in a four-hour gunbattle with U.S. forces. Coup rumors abound in Phillipino capital MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Rebellious soldiers stormed a major commercial center in Manila’s financial district early Sunday, hours after the Philippine president ordered the arrest of mutinous officers believed to be plotting a coup. Heavily armed men in camouflage uniforms rigged explosives at 3 a.m. at sites outside the Giorietta complex, which includes one of the? capital’s largest shopping malls, and in front of the adjacent Intercontinental Hotel. Guests were barred from leaving for their safety. A group of marines moved close to the area but made no move to engage the rebel troops. Saudis slam congressional report on terror war JIDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudis reacted angrily Saturday to a U.S. congressional report accusing the kingdom of not doing enough to counter terrorism and threatening to put the Gulf stat** under increased pressure to crack down on militants. Newspaper editorials slammed the report into the Sept. ll, 2001, attacks, while analysts were outraged by suggestions Saudi Arabia would aid the same breed of al-Qaida terrorists who also strike their own country — Osama bin ladens birthplace.
