Another deadly month

BAGHDAD - Insurgents killed four more US soldiers and another soldier died in and around the Iraqi capital, taking to 60 the military's losses for this month alone, the military reported on Sunday.

The four were attacked and killed on Saturday, while a fifth soldier died "due to a non-battle-related cause" in Baghdad on the same day.

One soldier was killed and three others were wounded when their combat patrol was attacked with small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades in west Baghdad.

Another combat patrol was attacked with small arms fire which killed one soldier and wounded another in an eastern sector of Baghdad.

A soldier was killed and three more were wounded when their vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb and small arms fire in the southwest of the capital.

And a soldier was also killed by indirect fire on a forward operating base southwest of Baghdad, the military said, adding that two others were wounded.

The latest deaths brought to 3,320 the American military's losses in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion, according to Pentagon figures.
