Nine US soldiers were killed and 20 were wounded Monday in a suicide car bombing against a patrol base northeast of Baghdad, the military said. The attack occurred in Diyala province, a volatile area that has been the site of fierce fighting between US and Iraqi troops, Sunni insurgents and Shi'ite insurgents, according to a statement. The nine Task Force Lightning soldiers died of injuries sustained in the blast, which also left 20 soldiers and an Iraqi civilian wounded, the military said. Of those wounded, 15 soldiers were treated and returned to duty while five others and the Iraqi civilian were evacuated to a medical facility for further care, it added.
