14 Dead American Soldiers in First Three Days of June
The U.S. military says at least 14 American soldiers were killed in Iraq in the first three days of June.
The fourteen includes six troops killed in incidents in the Baghdad area Sunday. In each attack, the troops' vehicles struck roadside bombs or were hit by improvised explosive devices.
The military said 8 U.S. troops were killed in incidents Friday and Saturday.
This comes after 127 U.S. troops were killed in May, the third-deadliest month for U.S. forces since the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
