Four US soldiers killed

Karbala, Oct. 17 (Reuters): Four US military police personnel and two Iraqi policemen were killed when roof-top attackers fired on their patrol in Karbala, a US military spokesperson said today.

Major Ralph Manos said four US military police and five Iraqi police were wounded in the attack with rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles yesterday.

The US deaths brought to 101 the number of American soldiers killed in Iraq since President George W. Bush declared major combat over on May 1.

It was the deadliest attack on US troops since three soldiers died in an ambush near Tikrit.
