May on course to be deadliest month in Iraq for U.S. troops

Posted: Updated:

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military reports that eight American troops, seven soldiers and a Marine, have been killed in bombings, an ambush and shootings.

Five of the deaths occurred Saturday. Three soldiers were killed when an explosion hit their patrol north of Baghdad; one died in a roadside bombing in south Baghdad and the Marine was killed during combat operations in Anbar province, west of the capital.

The military says one soldier was killed in an ambush late Friday north of the capital, and two other soldiers were hit by a roadside bomb on Wednesday in eastern Baghdad.

The deaths bring the number of U.S. forces killed in May to 100, putting it on course to be one of the deadliest months for American troops in years.
