For the first time, US servicemen are killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq. The four soldiers die at a checkpoint near Najaf at the hands of someone described as a non-commissioned officer in the Iraqi army. They won't be the last killed in such a manner over the coming years.

Iraqi vice-president Taha Yassin Ramadan announces that they would become "routine military policy."
