More Marines Die in Iraq

Six more Marines, all based out of Camp Lejeune, have been killed by bomb blasts in Iraq. Two of them were killed Thursday while on patrol along the Euphrates River as part of "Operation Iron Fist,” a mission to oust Al-Qaida and Iraqi militants from a half-dozen towns there. Apart from the offensives, four Marines were killed Thursday by a roadside bomb near the town of Fallujah. The death toll for U.S. troops is nearing 2000.
