Three Dead in Explosion near Kuwaiti Border

By John Lee.

Three Iraqi civilians were reportedly killed on Wednesday when a booby-trapped truck exploded near the Kuwaiti border in Iraq.

The Kuwaiti news agency KUNA quoted a local Iraqi official as saying that the explosion happened at a garage near the main road about 12 km (7.5 miles) north of the Safwan border crossing.

Iraqi authorities have been enforcing heightened security measures at the port of Umm Qasr, where no large vehicles are allowed in or out, police sources said.
