BAGHDAD, Iraq_Four U.S. troops were killed in Iraq, two in a Baghdad
explosion and two in separate incidents in the volatile Anbar province, the
U.S. military command said Sunday.

Two U.S. soldiers were killed in eastern Baghdad Sunday morning when their
vehicle hit a roadside bomb, the command said in a statement.

A Marine assigned to Regimental Combat Team 5 died Friday from wounds
sustained due to enemy activity in Anbar province, it said in a separate
statement. A second Marine assigned to Regimental Combat Team 7 was killed
Sunday, also from wounds sustained during enemy action in Anbar province.

The names of the troops are being withheld while military officials contact
their families.

More than 2,600 American troops have died in Iraq since the U.S.-led
invasion began in March 2003, according to a tally by The Associated Press;
at least 2,100 of those were killed by hostile action.
