    Details are unclear, but some soldiers are believed to have been killed, and others injured.

    Two vehicles are reported to have been targeted.

    Earlier, US soldiers in Iraq shot dead a 14-year-old boy and wounded several others after mistaking celebratory gunfire for an enemy attack, witnesses said.

    According to witnesses, American troops were passing in a convoy when guests at the wedding started firing in celebration.

    They said soldiers, believing they were under attack, formed a circle and began shooting.
