Four American soldiers have been killed in bomb attacks in Baghdad and northern Iraq on Tuesday, the U.S. military said.
Three soldiers were killed when a roadside bomb struck their patrol in northern the country this morning, a military statement said without telling the exact location of the incident.
Separately, a fourth soldier was also killed by a roadside bomb explosion near his patrol in southern Baghdad, the military said.
The names of the deceased are being withheld pending notification of next of kin, the statements added.
The latest deaths bring the number of U.S. soldiers who have been killed in Iraq to about 4,342 since the outbreak of the U.S.-led war on Iraq in 2003, according to media account based on Pentagon figures.
