Bagdad Curfew Ends

In Baghdad, residents emerged from their homes on June 17, 2007, at the end of a four-day lockdown.

The extra security and curfew were imposed after last week’s bombing of a major Shiite shrine.

Many wonder if the lockdown only succeeded in delaying revenge attacks.

As the Baghdad curfew ended the U.S. Military reported it had killed 14 suspected insurgents and captured 20 others in separate operations over the weekend.

The U.S. Military said three American soldiers were killed on June, 16, in explosions near their vehicles.

The deaths bring to 3,524 the number of U.S. service members who have died since the war began.
