Roadside Bombs Kill Three U.S. Soldiers

"BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Roadside bombs killed three U.S. soldiers Monday in two separate attacks and 16 Iraqis were killed elsewhere, including five teachers and their driver who were shot to death in a classroom by suspected insurgents disguised as policemen.

U.S. and Iraqi authorities, meanwhile, freed 500 detainees from the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in a goodwill gesture to Sunnis ahead of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and less than three weeks before a referendum on Iraq's draft constitution.

Two of the American soldiers were killed early Monday in western Baghdad, while the third, who was working with the 42nd Brigade, died about 50 miles southeast of the capital, the military said."
