by UPI

BAGHDAD -- Insurgents attacked British military bases and patrols in southern Iraq Friday, a British militart spokesman said.

The spokesman said all British bases and positions around Basra were attacked with artillery shells and rockets and that a military patrol had been attacked with a bomb, rockets and automatic gunfire, the Kuwait News Agency, KUNA, reported.

The spokesman did not say whether anyone had been killed in the attacks.
Also Friday, four explosions rocked the heavily-fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, KUNA reported.

Missiles fell on a number of buildings in the Green Zone, which houses Iraqi government buildings and the U.S. and British embassies.

A car bomb killed 17 people and wounded 25 others at a Baghdad wedding Thursday, Voice of America reported. The bride and groom were among the injured in the car bombing and children were among the dead.

The U.S. military said coalition forces killed three terrorists and captured eight suspects in al-Anbar province, VOA reported.

Also, a U.S. soldier died Thursday from wounds received in combat in western Baghdad and two American soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb, the military said.
