Five Marines Killed In Vehicle Accident In Iraq

U-S military officials say five Marines have been killed after a seven-ton military truck rolled over during a flash flood in western Iraq.

Authorities say another person is injured and three troops are missing from that rollover yesterday in Iraq's Anbar province.

Military officials say they're using all available resources to find the two Marines and sailor who are missing. They say the rollover appears to be an accident and "not a result of enemy action."
