Five US soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter have been killed in separate combat incidents, the US military said Thursday. A Task Force Marne soldier was killed by small arms fire Thursday near the village of Rushdi Mullah, just southwest of the capital, the military said. Four soldiers and their Iraqi interpreter were killed Wednesday when a roadside bomb exploded near their patrol in east Baghdad, the military said in a separate statement. The blast occurred during operations to disrupt the flow of explosives into the capital, the command said.
