BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- A roadside bomb killed an American soldier and wounded another in Baghdad on Friday, the military said. A U.S. Marine was also killed a day earlier, it said.
The soldier who was killed in Baghdad belonged to the U.S. Army's 1st Armored Division, the military said in a statement. The attack occurred at around 6 a.m. in the Mansour neighborhood.
The injured soldier was in stable condition at a field hospital, the military said.
Separately, a U.S. Marine was killed "as a result of enemy action" in Anbar province on Thursday, according to a statement from Camp Fallujah, the Marine base in the area.
U.S. Marines are responsible for security in the city of Fallujah, where a mob mutilated the bodies of four American contractors after they were killed by rebels on Wednesday. The military did not say whether the Marine was killed in Fallujah.
The names of the slain troops were withheld pending notification of next of kin.
