Military: 6 U.S. troops killed in Iraq
( AP ) - The U.S. military Saturday announced the deaths of six more American service members in combat operations in Iraq, most of them in the Baghdad area.
Two soldiers died Friday and three others were wounded when a roadside bomb exploded near their patrol in east Baghdad, the military said.
A U.S. soldier and an Iraqi interpreter were killed Friday when an explosively formed penetrator exploded near their patrol in southeastern Baghdad, the military said. Three soldiers were wounded.
Explosively formed penetrators are high-tech bombs that the U.S. believes are provided by Iran. The Iranians deny the charge.
Three other service members were killed Thursday - two Marines in western Anbar province and a soldier in Baghdad, the command said.
