THI-QAR / Aswat al-Iraq: A U.S.

vehicle patrol was damaged on Monday by a bomb blast in Thi-Qar province, according to a security source.

"A U.S.

vehicle was damaged as an Explosively Formed Penetrator (EFP) was remotely detonated targeting a U.S.

motorcade on the road linking between al-Masouriya region and Imam Ali airbase, southern Nassiriya," the source, who asked for anonymity, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

"The road was closed for two hours to defuse two more EFP bombs at the same place," he added.

Nassiriya, the capital of Thi-Qar, is 380 km south of Baghdad.
