Two U.S. soldiers are dead after their unit was attacked in northern Iraq. The soldiers were ambushed in a small arms and rocket-propelled grenade attack at Tall Afur, a town just west of Mosul in the predominantly Kurdish north of the country.
Two soldiers were killed and at least one suffered serious wounds. The military is reporting no casualties among the attackers.
The attack is the latest in a series of guerrilla-style small-arms and grenade attacks that have killed 37 U.S. troops since major combat ended on May first.
Reports say three international U.N. aid workers suffered wounds in a separate attack in the historic city of Hilla, 100 kilometers south of Baghdad.
