A U.S. Army soldier from the 588th Engineering Battalion
takes position during a pre-dawn raid in the village of Ain Lalin,
Iraq , early August 11, 2003. U.S. soldiers piled out of Black
Hawk helicopters to raid a remote village near the Iranian border
which they believed one of Iraq's top fugitives had used as base
to plot guerilla attacks on U.S. forces. Monday's pre-dawn raid
on the village, 100 kilometers (62 miles) northeast of Baghdad,
failed to capture its main target, a former regime officer who
is on the U.S. list of 55 most-wanted Iraqis.
