4 more US soldiers killed in Iraq


Four more US soldiers have been killed in Iraq, the military announced yesterday, as an increased pace in combat operations kept the average rate of American deaths at three per day so far this month.

In the bloodiest incident, one soldier was killed and nine were wounded by an explosion next to their patrol Thursday while they were "conducting combat operations" in Diyala province north of Baghdad.

Two of the wounded were able to return to duty, a statement said, while the others are receiving treatment.
