Iraq - 5 US marines die in IED attack

Five US marines died Wednesday after an attack on their Humvee. They were travelling along a road in Ramadi when it was hit by an IED [Improvised Explosive Device], US military sources said. It comes only a week after a similar incident in Haqlaniya in which five marines also died. The US death toll now stands at 1,715. On Thursday a car bomb exploded next to an Iraqi police convoy on Baghdad's airport road. Six police officers were killed and 25 were wounded.
