New Attacks Kill Two U.S. Soldiers in Baghdad

Two American soldiers were killed in separate incidents in Baghdad overnight, U.S. military officials said Monday. Four others were wounded in an attack west of the Iraqi capital. The first incident took place late Sunday when a member of the Army’s 1st Armored Division was killed while pursuing Iraqi gunmen. One Iraqi gunman was killed and another wounded in the firefight. Another 1st Armored Division soldier was killed around 1 a.m. Monday when his vehicle was hit by an “improvised explosive device,” military officials said. Four U.S. soldiers were wounded late Sunday when a joint patrol of the 124th Infantry and the 3rd Armored Cavalry came under attack by rocket-propelled grenades in Ramadi, west of Baghdad, a military spokesman said. The troops returned fire, killing one Iraqi and wounding another. There have been 30 hostile and 43 non-hostile deaths in Iraq since May 1, when President Bush declared an end to major combat in Iraq. Full Story
