BAGHDAD - Another four US soldiers have died in series of incidents across Iraq, the US military reported on Tuesday.
A soldier with the 89th Military Police brigade was killed and two others wounded when their vehicle was struck on Tuesday by a suicide car bomb in the northern city of Mosul.
In Baghdad, a soldier died when his vehicle struck a roadside bomb in northeast Baghdad while shortly afterwards another was killed by small arms in north-central Baghdad, both on Sunday.
US troops are in the midst of conducting operations to confiscate weapons and restore security to this area of Baghdad under the three month old Operation Together Forward.
On Monday, a soldier in the medical task force which provides health care in Iraq died of "non-battle related injuries", the statement from the US military said without elaborating.
The latest fatalities bring the number of US deaths since the March 2003 invasion to 2,683 according to an AFP count based on Pentagon figures.
