Insurgents killed two U.S. soldiers in two separate attacks in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Sunday, the U.S. military said on Monday.

A soldier was killed when a roadside bomb explosion followed by small arms fire attack on a joint U.S. and Iraqi patrol in western Baghdad, the military said in a statement.

Two other Iraqi police officers were also wounded in the attack, the statement said.

Another soldier was killed when insurgents attacked his combat patrol with small arms fire in southern Baghdad, another military statement said.

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