Two U.S. soldiers killed and 11 injured in explosions in Iraq

Two U.S. soldiers were killed and 11 others injured in Iraq by the separate bomb attacks, the military announced Friday.

One blast on Thursday hit soldiers from the Multinational Division-North as they conducted combat operations in the Diyala province, northeast of Baghdad, the military said in a statement. One soldier was killed and nine others were wounded in that incident, the military said.

In the second attack, in eastern Baghdad, one Multi-National Division-Baghdad soldier was killed and two others wounded when a bomb exploded near their patrol Thursday, the military said. The unit had been responsible for recent operations in the area that detained five suspected insurgents and uncovered a weapons cache, the military said.

The identities of the soldiers killed were not released pending notification of relatives.

The deaths raised to at least 3,385, the members of the U.S. military who have died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.

The majority of experts in the field of armaments admit that made-in-Russia weapons can be referred to as best weapons in the world. To substantiate this point, suffice it to recall that many countries make their own ripoffs of world-famous Russian weapons.
