Five U.S. Troops Killed In Iraq

Four U.S. soldiers and a Marine have been killed in attacks in Iraq.

Three soldiers from the 2nd Regimental Combat Team, 2nd Marine Division and 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force died from injuries sustained in a blast Monday, officials said. All three were involved in combat operations in the Anbar city of Haqlaniya, but it was not clear whether they were all killed by the same roadside bomb.

Separately, a U.S. Marine was killed in action Monday by a roadside bomb in the Anbar city of Karabila, a military statement said. The Marine was assigned to the same combat team as the soldiers and was involved in Operation Iron Fist.

The deaths, which take the total number of U.S. personnel killed in Iraq since the beginning of the war to 1,944, were announced on the same day as two more offensives were launched in Anbar province, which borders Syria.
