Insurgents' Gunshots Critically Wound two Children

Mosul, Iraq
-- Anti-Iraqi insurgents shot and critically wounded two Iraqi children in northern Iraq on Jan. 16.

Both children were taken to local hospitals.

Multi-National Forces from 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team), were patrolling southwestern Mosul when anti-Iraqi insurgents began shooting at them. The insurgents' fire struck two civilian children playing in the area.

This demonstrates a lack of concern by insurgents for the safety of innocent Iraqis, including children.
