Baghdad.

 

After guard dog reportedly kills US Marine, US forces go on dog-killing spree in Baghdad Wednesday.

 

In a dispatch posted at 6:34pm Makkah time Wednesday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that in another strange American campaign, US forces on Wednesday busied themselves battling guard dogs kept by Iraqis to help protect their shops and homes in Baghdad and al-Anbar Province.

 

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported residents of the al-‘Amiriyah district in Baghdad as saying that US troops shot and killed 13 trained guard dogs on Wednesday, a day after one guard dog attacked a Marine and bit him in the neck – a wound that eventually killed him.

 

Iraqi sources said that residents of the al-Ghazaliyah area of Baghdad reported that US troops arrested Sami Khalid, a veterinarian and guard dog trainer, on charges of training dogs to attack US troops.  The Americans killed eight dogs of different breeds that were in his veterinary clinic near a meeting hall in the area.

 

Baghdad man says US troops planted explosives in his car, tried to get him killed.

 

In a dispatch posted at 6:24pm Makkah time Wednesday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that an Iraqi accused American troops of planting explosives in his car and trying to get him killed in the Palestine Street area of eastern Baghdad.

 

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported Husayn Jawwad ‘Abd al-Hasan, a 54-year-old Shi‘i Iraqi and food-product distributor, as saying that American troops stopped his Kia car on the road to the ar-Rashid camp in southeastern Baghdad on Monday and carried out a meticulous search of the vehicle that took them 10 minutes.  “They emptied out a number of cardboard boxes that were in the car and then told me to drive off,” ‘Abd al-Hasan said.

 

“After I got to Palestine Street,” ‘Abd al-Hasan went on, “near the Turkoman Recreation Center, I parked my car near one of my clients to deliver a part of my cargo.  It was then that I was shocked to find a bomb, weighing about 20kg and inscribed with a number.”

 

‘Abd al-Hasan said that the shopkeeper immediately called the puppet “Iraqi Interior Ministry Shock Troops (Maghawir),” who arrested him.  “They arrested and held me for 12 hours investigating me,” ‘Abd al-Hasan recalled, adding, “ they put my car in a big empty square and waited for the bomb to go off.”

 

‘Abd al-Hasan said that the translator working with the Americans at the checkpoint had asked him where he was heading and ‘Abd al-Hasan said he was going to “Madinat as-Sadr,” thinking that the Americans don’t feel suspicious about people from that predominantly Shi‘i area and don’t closely search cars going there.  He said that because of that story, however, he had survived.  He explained that the time needed to go from the ar-Rashid camp to “Madinat as-Sadr” was an hour or an hour and 15 minutes at least.  But he got to Palestine Street in just half an hour and therefore the bomb had not yet exploded when it was discovered.
