Seven US soldiers killed in weekend bomb attacks in Iraq

Roadside bombs killed seven US soldiers in Iraq, one just newly arrived, and wounded several other people over the weekend as attackers use sneakier methods to conceal their weapons, officials said. A bomb exploded late Saturday killing three troops from the 1st Armoured Division as they patrolled an area in southeast Baghdad, a senior military official said. “One of our reconnaissance patrols stuck an improvised explosive device (IED), the blast caused the vehicle to roll into a canal,” the military official told reporters. A fourth soldier who was wounded died at a combat hospital Sunday, the Pentagon said. Hours later, west of the city, a newly arrived US National Guard soldier was killed when the convoy he was travelling in was hit by a separate bomb attack at about 6:30 am (0300 GMT) Sunday.
