BAGHDAD, Iraq - An Army soldier was killed when the vehicle he was riding in
was hit by a roadside bomb, the U.S. military said Monday, bringing to ten
the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq since Friday.

The Baghdad-based soldier died late Sunday night on the outskirts of the
capital, the military said.

That followed the deaths earlier Sunday of two Marines assigned to
Regimental Combat Team 5, killed in fighting in Iraq's volatile al-Anbar
province, the U.S. military said Monday.

No further details were released and the names of the soldier and Marines
were being withheld pending notification of their families.
