Twelve American soldiers have been killed across Iraq in recent three days, including six who died with one civilian journalist in a roadside bombing in Diyala province on Sunday, the U.S. military said.

In the deadliest violence, six Task Force Lightning Soldiers and one civilian journalist died when their vehicle was attacked by a roadside bomb in Diyala province on Sunday, a brief military statement said, adding two additional soldiers are injured.

Another American soldier was killed and two others were wounded when their vehicle was struck by two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) north of Baghdad on Sunday, according to the military.

Also on Sunday, a U.S. soldier was killed and another injured when their patrol was struck by a roadside bomb in southern Baghdad.

Meanwhile, another U.S. soldier also died Sunday in a "non- combat related incident" in Tikrit north of Baghdad, which is under investigation.

On Saturday, two Marines assigned to Multi National Force-West were killed while conducting combat operations in Iraq's western province of Anbar, according to the military statement.

On Friday, a U.S. soldier was killed and four others were wounded when an roadside bomb detonated in western Baghdad.

More than 3,370 U.S. soldiers have been killed since the U.S.- led war in Iraq broke out in March 2003, according to media count based on Pentagon figures.
