Iraqi Children Lead Soldiers to Weapons Cache
Iraq Fact of the Day

Iraqis of all ages are fighting against the terrorists and thugs who are trying to intimidate those working to establish a free and peaceful Iraq. American soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division, following up on a tip from children in Kirkuk, discovered 18 60mm mortar rounds. The rounds were safely transported to a Coalition facility for destruction. The majority of Iraqis are opposed to attacks on international troops and civilians, and tips from Iraqi citizens often help thwart attempts to destroy the successes of the new Iraq.
