US base supply convoy comes under attack in southern Iraq

A supply convoy intended for a US military base was attacked in southern Iraq between the cities of Es Samava and Diva. Four wagons were attacked in the Najme region between Divaniya and Es Samava. Trucks, whose drivers are citizens of Iraq, were transporting supplies from Bosra for one of the US bases.

The militants attacked the convoy in pickup trucks and forced it to stop, after which they took the drivers out of the trucks and set fire to the vehicles, and then disappeared into an unknown direction.
