BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A roadside bomb killed three U.S. soldiers when it struck their vehicle in Baghdad, the U.S. military said in a statement on Wednesday.
The vehicle was hit in the northwestern part of the capital late on Tuesday, the statement said. There were no further details.
Attacks have fallen across Iraq in recent months due to a crackdown on militants, U.S. commanders say, but 22 soldiers have been killed so far in February.
In total, 3,966 U.S. troops have been killed in Iraq since the 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.
