font size    

Two U.S. soldiers were killed on Thursday when a roadside bomb struck their vehicle southwest of Baghdad, the U.S. military said.

"Two Multi-National Division-Baghdad Soldiers died at approximately 9 a.m. May 11 when their vehicle struck a roadside bomb during a patrol southwest of Baghdad," the military said in a statement.

Earlier on Thursday, a third U.S. soldier assigned to the same U.S. Division, was killed when his convoy hit a roadside bomb at about 6:30 a.m. (0230 GMT) southwest of Baghdad, the U.S. military said in a separate statement.

Both statements provided no further details, including the exact locations of the attacks.

The names of the soldiers are being withheld pending notification of next of kin, the statements said.

The latest death brought to about 2,415 the number of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003.
