Roadside bombs kill three US soldiers in Iraq

Three US soldiers were killed by roadside bombs, the military said Sunday. In the worst attack, two soldiers assigned to the 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) died when an improvised explosive device hit their security patrol in Anbar, Iraq's largest province, on Saturday, the US command said. The other soldier from the Multinational Corps-Iraq died of injuries sustained when his convoy was struck a roadside bomb at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday near Taji, which is 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of the capital and home to a major US air base. The soldiers' names were withheld pending notification of relatives.
