Four more US soldiers die in Iraq info
marine in the restive town of Ramadi, the Pentagon announced Saturday
During the latest anti-insurgent operation in Ramadi, a soldier died of
wounds sustained when a rocket struck his vehicle on Thursday.
The city 110 kilometers (70 miles) west of Baghdad was the scene of rebel
action Thursday but the US command minimized the seriousness of the
appearance of armed men in broad daylight, saying it was a largely symbolic
action for propaganda purposes.
On Friday, three soldiers died in a car accident in Balad, north of Baghdad.
This news comes following Friday's announcement of the killing of 10 marines
on Thursday during a night patrol near Fallujah, 50 kilometers (30 miles)
west of the capital, not far from Ramadi.
That incident marks the single largest military combat death since August.
A total 2,125 US service personnel have died in Iraq since the March 2003
invasion, the Pentagon said.
