FALLUJA - Eight Iraqi soldiers were killed and one was seriously wounded in a northern Iraqi town on Tuesday when armed men opened fire on their patrol and then set their vehicle on fire, police sources said.

The incident occurred at around 1:30 am in the town of Haditha, 190 km northwest of Baghdad, they said.

Iraq's army and police are a primary target of bombs and killings as US security forces prepare to fully withdraw by year-end, more than eight years after the US-led invasion.
