BAGHDAD - Two more US marines have been killed in action in Iraq, their
headquarters said Monday, bringing the number of American troops to have
died this month to 52.

A statement from the US-led coalition in Iraq said that the soldiers from
Regimental Combat Team 5, which is based in Fallujah in western Iraq, died
on Sunday following unspecified "enemy action".

The deaths bring the number of US military personnel to have died in the
Iraq campaign since the March 2003 invasion to 2,761, according an AFP
count based on Pentagon figures.
