Nine Americans die in Iraq attacks
A suicide car bomber attacked a U.S. diplomatic convoy in the northern city of Mosul, killing four Americans and injuring two others, a U.S. official said Tuesday. A fifth soldier died in a blast north of Baghdad.
A U.S. Diplomatic Security agent and three private security guards were killed when the bomber rammed their SUV, the middle vehicle in a convoy of three, the official said, according to The AP.
He disclosed the victims were attached to the U.S. Consulate in Mosul.
Meanwhile, the U.S. military said Tuesday that four American troops attached to the Marines were killed in two separate roadside bombing attacks near Ramadi.
The soldiers died in two separate bomb attacks on Monday during "combat operations," the military said.
