Three Americans were killed when their convoy was bombed in the Gaza Strip. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the roadside attack Wednesday morning on the three-car convoy carrying staff from the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv. The three killed were security guards escorting American personnel, some of whom were on their way to interview Palestinians applying to enter the United States as Fulbright scholars.
