Three killed in bomb attack on U.S. convoy

The blast took place on Monday when a bomb struck an American convoy carrying soldiers, U.S. government employees and contractors while they were traveling near the city of Fallujah, some 50 km west of Baghdad, a military statement said.
It was not immediately known whether any of those killed or wounded in the attack were Americans.
Fallujah, part of Anbar province, once was the key Sunni insurgent stronghold in Iraq after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Sporadic attacks continue in Iraqi cities despite the U.S. and Iraqi officials announced a relative lull in violence during the past months.
