A US Marine was killed Tuesday and a soldier died the day before in fighting in a volatile province west of Baghdad, the military said. The military said a Marine assigned to Regimental Combat Team 5 died from "wounds sustained due to enemy action" Tuesday in Anbar province, an insurgent hotbed that stretches from just west of Baghdad to the Jordanian and Syrian borders. The soldier, who was with the 1st Brigade, 1st Armored Division, was killed in enemy action in Anbar on Monday, the military said in a separate statement. The names of the deceased were being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The deaths raise to 2,527 the number of US military service members who have died since the Iraq war started in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
