   BAGHDAD, Sept. 12 (Xinhuanet) -- Insurgents attacked a US military convoy on Baghdad's airport road, destroying three hamvees and causing unknown casualties, a Xinhua photographer at the scene said Sunday.

   The attack took place Sunday morning southwest of the capital. The US armored vehicles were still ablaze at around 11:30 am (07:30GMT), he said.

   "US helicopters flew overhead as US troops blocked the road of Baghdad's international airport. Several four-wheel drive cars were at the scene as armed foreigners spread in the area and started to search civilian cars," the photographer said.

   The number of the casualties among the US soldiers was not immediately known.  Enditem
