BASE UDAIRI, Kuwait -- Un sujeto no identificado embistió el domingo con una camioneta a un grupo de soldados estadounidenses en la base de Udairi, Kuwait, y causó heridas a 15 militares, informaron funcionarios militares de Estados Unidos.

El teniente coronel Larry Cox, oficial de relaciones pùblicas en la base estadounidense, informó que el atacante conducía una camioneta blanca durante el incidente, que ocurrió alrededor del mediodía fuera de la tienda de la base.

Hubo disparos en el sitio del atentado y una ambulancia llegó al campamento, segùn la estación de televisión satelital enlengua árabe Al-Jazeera.

Durante una conferencia de prensa en Doha, Qatar, el general Tommy Franks, comandante estadounidense de la operación en Iraq, hizo notar que el ataque fue sustancialmente diferente de otro con un coche bomba, que mató a cuatro soldados estadounidenses en la localidad iraquí de Najaf el sábado.

"Es obvio que el modo de operación del segundo ataque (en el campamento Udairi) no tuvo ninguna semejanza con el primer ataque con un coche bomba", declaró Franks a la prensa.

El Campamento Udairi es la base de aviación del 5to Cuerpo de las Fuerzas Armadas estadounidenses que tambièn es utilizado para operaciones de mantenimiento y abasto.

Kuwait, un pequeño estado petrolero, ha permitido una presencia militar estadounidense permanente desde el fin de la guerra del Golfo Pèrsico, en 1991. Ahora es la principal plataforma de lanzamiento de la operación por tierra de las fuerzas estadounidenses.
