Americans, Spaniards, Italians, Iraqis....and now the Poles are the target.
Suicide car bombers have killed two Iraqis and wounded 44 others as well as eight soldiers with the U.S.-led coalition at a base used by coalition soldiers in the Iraqi city of Hilla, a military spokesman says.

"At 7:15 local time near the logistics base there was a terrorist attack using two cars," Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Strzelecki, a spokesman for Polish-led troops in the region, told Reuters on Wednesday. "We found the bodies of the two drivers, and two Iraqis standing in the street were killed."

Eight coalition soldiers -- six Poles, a Hungarian and an American -- were wounded in the attack in Hilla, about 60 miles south of Baghdad, the latest strike on the soldiers of countries helping the United States occupy Iraq.
