Two US Marines have been killed in fighting in western Iraq, the US command said Tuesday.
One Marine assigned to the Regimental Combat Team 7 died Sept. 30 in fighting in the Anbar province, the military said.
Another Marine with the Regimental Combat Team 7 died Oct. 1 in fighting in the same area.
That brings the total to five US Marines who died in Anbar over the weekend, four battle deaths and one from a non-combat related vehicle accident.
The Marines' names are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
