US military says it has no evidence of attack on human shields.AS-SALIYAH, Qatar (AFP) - US military authorities said here they had no evidence that a US warplane attacked two buses in western Iraq (news - web sites) carrying international volunteers to serve as "human shields." "Preliminary investigation by US Central Command has not turned up any evidence of this alleged incident," the command said in a statement at its forward planning headquarters. "However, command officials are continuing to look into the allegation. Coalition forces target only legitimate military targets and go to great lengths to minimize civilian casualties and damage to civilian facilities." Iraqi Information Minister Mohammad Said al-Sahhaf said earlier Tuesday that several people were wounded when a US warplane attacked two Iraqi buses carrying international volunteers, some of them American, who were operating as "human shields." He said the incident took place Monday in the western town of Rutba between Baghdad and neighboring Jordan.
