2 US Soldiers Killed in Iraq

The U.S. military in Iraq says two American soldiers were killed in separate incidents in the country's north.

A statement issued Saturday said one soldier died Friday near Mosul, about 370 kilometers north of Baghdad. The statement gave no other details about how the soldier died.

A second statement said a U.S. soldier died Thursday of injuries sustained in a non-combat related incident. The military says it is investigating both deaths.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Kurdistan Workers' Party, also known as the PKK, said Turkish air strikes on Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq killed four rebels earlier this week.

The spokesman Saturday said the air strikes also wounded five others.
