Two Finns killed in Baghdad

BAGHDAD, MARCH 2. A car bomb blew up near a U.S. Air Force base north of the capital on Monday, killing two Iraqi civilians and wounding 25 others, an Iraqi security official said. The U.S. military said a bomb killed a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi interpreter in Baghdad.

In Helsinki, the Finnish Foreign Ministry said two Finnish businessmen were shot and killed in Baghdad on Monday. They are the first Finns to die in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion a year ago. The men were part of a technological delegation visiting Baghdad, a Ministry spokesman said.

In the southern city of Basra, British soldiers fired tear gas at about 500 unemployed Iraqi civilians who were throwing rocks and petrol bombs. The Iraqis protested over a failure to get jobs with the local customs police.

Six civilians and three British soldiers were injured, said an Iraqi customs officer.
