3 U.S. soldiers killed near Tikrit
Hours later, soldiers pointed tank cannons at reporters every time they tried to approach to find out what had happened.
As it grew dark, the Americans pulled out, removing the burned truck with a crane.
About 100 Iraqis danced in the streets and carried a large photo of Saddam dressed in military fatigues. There was celebratory gunfire and the people chanted: “With our blood, with our souls, we sacrifice ourselves for you, Saddam.”
