Four US soldiers killed near Baghdad, Mosul
Iraq's daily barrage of attacks killed four more American soldiers on Tuesday. In one incident, three U.S. soldiers were killed in an attack near the northern city of Mosul, Al Jazeera reported.
Elsewhere, a US soldier was killed and another injured on Tuesday in an ambush along a dangerous road in the "Sunni Triangle" north of the capital Baghdad, the US military reported.
The US Central Command in Tampa, Florida, said the attackers used rocket-propelled grenades and small arms in the attack staged along the road between Balad, some 80 kilometers north of Baghdad, and Ramadi, about 100 kilometers west of the capital, according to AP.
Both towns lie within the "Sunni Triangle," so named because it is home to much of the remaining support for toppled leader Saddam Hussein. (Albawaba.com)
