(Reuters) – One U.S. soldier was killed and three were wounded when a roadside bomb exploded near their patrol in eastern Baghdad, the U.S. military said.
Another U.S. soldier was killed by a roadside bomb which struck his patrol near the city of Baquba, 65 km (40 miles) north of Baghdad, on Friday, the U.S. military said.
A third U.S. soldier died in a road accident last Wednesday, the U.S. military reported.
