LATE WEDNESDAY, a soldier from the 1st Armored Division was shot and killed while on patrol in the al-Mansour district of western Baghdad, the U.S. command said.

A soldier from the 4th Infantry Division also died Wednesday when a roadside bomb exploded about 300 yards from the main U.S. base in Tikrit, Saddam’s hometown. Two other soldiers were wounded in the blast. U.S. troops in Tikrit fired mortars overnight into empty fields near the base in a show of force.

Another soldier from the 4th Infantry Division died following a rocket-propelled grenade attack on an American convoy Wednesday near Samara, about 60 miles north of the Iraqi capital, according to the military.

The latest casualties — names were withheld pending notification of relatives — bring to 90 the number of American soldiers to die by hostile fire in Iraq since President Bush declared an end to major combat operations on May 1. A total of 314 American service members have died since the war started on March 20, according to the Department of Defense.

U.S. officials have warned that coalition forces are facing more sophisticated attacks by a determined resistance centered in Sunni Muslim areas to the north and west of Baghdad.

Correction from CNN,

A total of 316 Americans have died from all different causes in Iraq since March 20. 201 have died as a result of hostile fire and 115 from other non-hostile events. From March 20 to May 1, 115 US troops were killed by hostile fire. From May 1 to now(October 2), 86 US troops have been killed by hostile fire.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents killed three U.S. soldiers with roadside bombs, the military reported Tuesday.

The three soldiers' deaths, the first reported since Friday, brought to 91 the number of American soldiers killed in hostile action since President Bush declared an end to major combat on May 1. A total of 320 U.S. service members have died in Iraq since the United States and Britain launched military operations against Saddam Hussein's government March 20.

One soldier attached to the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment was killed and another wounded in a bombing about 9:50 p.m. Monday just west of Baghdad.

About an hour later, another roadside bombing killed two soldiers attached to the 82nd Airborne Division and their Iraqi translator.

In the north, one U.S. soldier was killed at the oil refining town of Baiji, while a second died in a grenade attack in the Tikrit area. A third soldier died in an ambush northeast of Baghdad.

Their deaths brought to 97 the number of U.S. soldiers killed by hostile fire since President Bush declared major combat over on May 1.

I wish they would always publish a photo-they deserve at least that..

Donald Laverne Wheeler Jr., 22, an Army specialist in the 4th Infantry Division, is shown April 20, 2002, at his family home in Concord, Mich. Wheeler died Monday, Oct. 13, 2003, in a rocket-propelled grenade attack in Tikrit

Three American soldiers were killed and seven were wounded in a midnight clash at a Shiite Muslim cleric's headquarters in this shrine city, the U.S. military said Friday.

The U.S. troops, who were not identified pending notification of relatives, were members of the 101st Airborne Division, Maj. Mike Escudie of U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla. said in a statement.

4 American Soldiers Are Killed in 2 New Attacks in Iraq
By TERENCE NEILAN

Three American soldiers were killed and seven were wounded in the Shiite holy city of Karbala late Thursday night, and another soldier was killed in Baghdad this morning, military officials said today.

Two Iraqi security officers were also killed and five were wounded in the Karbala attack outside the headquarters of a Shiite cleric.

At about 11:30 p.m. on Thursday a patrol of American military police and Iraqi security forces was ambushed near the Imam Abbas Mosque in Karbala, about 50 miles south of Baghdad.

The patrol was investigating reports of armed men congregating on a road near the mosque after a 9 p.m. curfew, the United States Central Command said in a statement.

Three 101st Airborne Division military police soldiers were killed in an exchange of small-arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades.

After the incident, American soldiers and Iraqi police forces surrounded a site near a mosque where the ambushers were holed up, but by this afternoon Iraqi time the forces had withdrawn.

At about 7:50 this morning an American soldier of the 220th Military Police Brigade was killed by an improvised roadside bomb in the Baghdad area, Maj. Mike Escudie, a spokesman for the command, said. Two other soldiers were wounded.

The fatalities Thursday night and today bring the number of American soldiers killed in hostile action since President Bush declared major combat over on May 1 to at least 101.

The wounded from the Karbala attack were taken to the 28th Combat Support Hospital for treatment, but no further details were released. The soldier wounded today was taken to a nearby medical center, Central Command said.

Karbala was the scene on Monday night of a battle between rival Shiite Muslim militias, one loyal to Moktada al-Sadr, a young cleric who is increasingly defiant of the United States and critical of the occupation. At least one person was killed and several people were wounded.

The 9 p.m. curfew was imposed on Tuesday as a result of the battle.

Today's action was believed to involve followers of Mahmoud al-Hassani, a local Shiite ayatollah, not Mr. Sadr.

This is one monstrous dispute going on between Shia sects. I am not quite sure how anyone is going to deal with these disputes. Damn.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Two U.S. soldiers were killed and one wounded late Saturday in an attack near the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, a military spokeswoman told CNN.

With the latest deaths, 338 U.S. troops have been killed in the Iraq war since it began in March -- 218 of those by hostile fire.

Around 10:45 p.m. (3:45 p.m. ET), a U.S. mounted patrol of Humvees was attacked by rocket-propelled grenades and small arms fire, according to 4th Infantry Division spokeswoman Maj. Josslyn Aberle.

The 4th ID patrol returned fire, but the assailants fled, she said.

The wounded soldier is in stable condition.

AP - Assailants ambushed a U.S. Army foot patrol just outside Fallujah at midday Monday, killing one American and wounding five others in the second day of attacks in this anti-U.S. hotbed west of Baghdad, the American command reported. The patrol, from the 82nd Airborne Division, was first hit by an exploding homemade bomb, and then by small-arms fire, the military said.

Iraq Violence Claims 3 More Troops' Lives

By TAREK AL-ISSAWI, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Two U.S. soldiers were killed and four were wounded Friday in a mortar attack on their base north of Baghdad, and another American died in a shootout in the northern city of Mosul, the U.S. military said.

The latest U.S. deaths occurred when a mortar struck a forward operating base near Samara, 70 miles north of Baghdad, about noon Friday, the U.S. Central Command said.

In Mosul, a soldier from the 101st Airborne Division was killed by small arms fire before dawn Friday in the western end of the city, the command reported.

Names of the victims were withheld pending notification of kin.

The deaths bring to 108 the number of American soldiers killed by hostile fire since President Bush declared an end to major combat May 1
