Two U.S. soldiers were killed in two attacks in Iraq, the U.S. military said on Tuesday.

A soldier from the U.S. 1st Armored Division was killed on July 18 by "enemy action" while on duty in the western Anbar province, the military said in a statement.

Another soldier died of wounds sustained due to roadside bomb explosion at about 4:55 p.m. on Monday in southern Baghdad, the military said in a separate statement.
