4 Soldiers Vanish Near Oil Terminal


LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S. Navy (news - web sites) said Monday two small boats carrying four U.S. soldiers and at least three civilians disappeared in northern Gulf waters on Sunday.

The Fifth Fleet said the two boats were heading toward the Shatt al-Arab waterway from Iraq Mina al-Bakr oil terminal when they vanished.

Let's hope they reappear.
