Four US soldiers reported killed in ambush

Four US soldiers are reported to have been killed in central Iraq. ** Note: US sources currently only report these soldiers as wounded. The severity of the injuries have yet to be confirmed. **

Sky TV's Colin Brazier, who was travelling with the soldiers from the US Third Infantry Division, said the four reconnaissance scouts were ambushed while driving Humvee jeeps at the head of the column.

"Rocket-propelled grenades were fired, one at each Humvee, they killed both sets of occupants," he said in a brief live report on Sky.

If verified, it will raise US military deaths in Iraq to at least 11, total coalition deaths in Iraq to 25, and 80 US deaths in operation Enduring Freedom, the "war on terror".

Meanwhile, at least three US marines are reported wounded in fighting around Basra.
