An Iraqi man is treated in hospital after being injured in an early morning explosion in Baghdad, December 8, 2004. A roadside bomb intended for a passing U.S. military convoy exploded, injuring six civilians. The insurgent war of attrition against U.S. forces and their Iraqi proteges claimed another American life in Baghdad, taking the U.S. combat death toll to 1,000 since last year's invasion.
