AP: Violence In Iraq Leaves At Least 7 U.S. Marines Dead

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Seven U.S. Marines have been killed in Iraq, the U.S. command said Tuesday.

Six of the Marines, assigned to Regimental Combat Team-2 of the 2nd Marine Division, died Monday in Haditha, 140 miles northwest of Baghdad.

Insurgents posted handbills in Haditha, claiming to have killed 10 U.S. troops, seizing some of their weapons. Names of the deceased are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Another Marine was killed Monday by a car bomb in Hit, 50 miles southeast of Haditha in the volatile Euphrates River valley.

Meanwhile, medical officials said a roadside bomb targeting a U.S. military convoy in Baghdad has wounded at least 29 civilians.

The bomb exploded as the convoy was about to drive into a tunnel in the city's center, and left a yard-wide crater. An Iraqi official said it appeared that two Humvees were damaged. Charred Humvee parts littered the explosion site and seven civilian cars were also badly damaged.
