Three more US Marines were killed in battle in Iraq, the US military said Friday, making December the deadliest month this year for American troops in the war-wracked nation with the toll reaching 106. The Marines, all assigned to Regimental Combat Team 5, died Thursday of wounds from fighting in western Anbar province, the US military said. Their deaths pushed the toll past the 105 US service members killed in October. At least 2,993 members of the US military have been killed since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to an AP count.
