[A]bout 4,000 American forces were involved in the search for the three missing troops in the notorious "triangle of death" south of the capital. ... The military said the patrol was struck Saturday in a pre-dawn explosion near Mahmoudiya, about 20 miles south of Baghdad - an al-Qaida area where two U.S. Soldiers were found massacred after disappearing at a checkpoint nearly a year ago.
