Two U.S. troops killed in Iraq
A U.S. soldier was killed Tuesday evening when his vehicle drove over a bomb planted on a road north of the capital, the U.S. military said on Wednesday.
"A 4th Infantry Division soldier was killed by an IED (improvised explosive device) which detonated under the vehicle he was traveling in," Reuters cited spokeswoman Major Josslyn Aberle as saying.
Another soldier on Wednesday died of wounds suffered in a roadside bombing in Baghdad on Tuesday, the military added.
These deaths bring to 153 the number of soldiers killed by Iraqi resistance since President Bush declared an end to active combat May 1. (Albawaba.com)
