Regarding yesterdays post. I said that the attacks on the Spanish intelligence officers were carried out 200 km's south of Baghdad. I learned later that they actually occured near Latifiyah some 35 km's south of Baghdad, and according to local residents the attackers were wearing Iraqi military jackets and had kuffiya's wrapped around their heads. They hanged around the scene for a while after the attack threatening locals and shouting pro-Saddam slogans while shooting in the air.
