Four US soldiers have been killed in action in Iraq's restive western Al-Anbar province, a US military statement said today, while another soldier was killed in a vehicle accident further north.
"Four Soldiers assigned to First Marine Expeditionary Force were killed in action March 4,(Friday) while conducting security and stability operations in the Al Anbar province," said the statement without providing further details.
A separate statement said one US soldier was killed and another wounded in a vehicle accident near Tikrit, north of Baghdad, at about 10pm (6am AEDT) yesterday.
The latest deaths raised to 1499 the number of US servicemen killed in attacks or accidents in Iraq since the launch of the American-led war to oust Saddam Hussein nearly two years ago, according to Pentagon figures.
