Iraqi insurgents are trying out a new tactic. "The newest method of triggering [an improvised explosive] is a contact strip laid across part of the pavement," says Fox News' Rick Leventhal, who's in Iraq."It can be inside plastic tubing. When a tire hits it and the wires inside make contact boom. This method doesn't require the cowards to be on scene, but it's totally random. Any local on the road could be the next victim."
