Four American soldiers were killed and three wounded by improvised explosive devices in Iraq, the U.S. military announced today.
Three of the soldiers were killed and one wounded today when an IED exploded southwest of Baghdad, a military statement said.
The soldiers were part of the Multi-National Division-Baghdad unit. Their names were withheld by the military pending notification of next of kin.
Separately, the military said one soldier was killed and two wounded late yesterday when an IED exploded in the southern Shiite city of Diwaniyah.
One of the wounded soldiers was evacuated to a military hospital in Baghdad. The other returned to duty after being treated.
