A group of schoolchildren in the village of Himbiss, Iraq walk alongside a patrol of U.S. soldiers from 3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment. Said one soldier, "We just came out onto the street, and they started following us."  The soldiers are part of Operation Iron Harvest, which is meant to kill or capture al Qaida fighters who fled into rural areas of Diyala province after the U.S. troop surge in Baghdad and Baqubah last year.
