An American soldier was shot to death in an attack in southern Baghdad, the military said Friday. Another soldier died of wounds suffered during an attack the day before. A US statement said the Multi-National Division-Baghdad soldier was killed Thursday. The second soldier died Friday after a foot patrol was targeted by a roadside bomb south of Baghdad on Thursday, the military said. The statements said the soldiers' names would not be released until families could be notified.
