A roadside bomb killed two American soldiers Thursday in eastern Baghdad, the US military said. They were the first combat deaths in the capital in a week. A US statement said the soldiers were on patrol in the mostly Shiite area of the city when the blast occurred shortly after noon. The victims' names with withheld until their families could be notified. The casualties were the first suffered by the American military in the capital since Aug. 28 when a soldier was killed in a roadside bombing. Another soldier died Tuesday in Baghdad of non-hostile causes, the military said. That reflects the improved security in Baghdad after the US troop buildup of last year.
