FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


SOLDIERS KILL RPG GUNNERS

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Task Force Baghdad Soldiers killed six anti-Coalition insurgents in the early morning of May 12 during separate engagements spanning an hour's time in east Baghdad.

All six insurgents attacked Coalition patrols with rocket-propelled grenade launchers. There were no reports of Coalition injuries or damage to Coalition equipment or vehicles.

In all, Coalition patrols came under attack seven times during the morning. The seventh attack offered no opportunity for Coalition forces to make a positive identification of the enemy, so the patrol did not return fire.
