    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A suicide bomber blew up a vehicle Wednesday near a U.S. military convoy and large group of Iraqi children in Baghdad, killing 27 people, Iraqi police and hospital officials said.

    Iraqi police said most of the dead were children
    . The attack also left 20 people wounded.

    The U.S. military said at least seven children and a U.S. soldier died in the attack. Three U.S. soldiers were wounded.

    The soldiers were handing out treats to the children when the bomb went off, police said.

    The attack -- which happened around 10:50 a.m. (2:50 a.m.ET) in the eastern Baghdad neighborhood of al-Jaddeda -- also set a nearby house on fire, police said.

    "The car bomber made a deliberate decision to attack one of our vehicles as the soldiers were engaged in a peaceful operation with Iraqi citizens," Maj. Russ Goemaere said in the statement. "The terrorist undoubtedly saw the children around the Humvee as he attacked. The complete disregard for civilian life in this attack is absolutely abhorrent."

    I don't recall the NVA or VC blowing up many South Vietnamese. It seems like this will only turn the locals against you.
