The U.S. military says at least two Marines are dead and three Marines and a sailor are missing after a suicide car bomb blast struck their convoy in Fallujah late Thursday.

The military says that 13 other service members were wounded in the attack, which took place as the convoy was traveling through the city.  Officials released no further details about the incident.

In Baghdad, a British security firm guarding Iraq's main airport has temporarily stopped work because of a contract dispute with the Iraqi government. Following the move, all commercial flights at the airport were halted.

And in Mosul, local officials say one Iraqi woman was killed by an errant mortar round fired at a nearby police academy.
