A Fort Bragg spokesman confirms that the nine U-S soldiers killed in a bombing in Iraq are members of the 82nd Airborne Division.
The attack was the single deadliest strike on U-S ground forces since December 2005, when a roadside bomb killed ten Marines on a foot patrol near Fallujah.
An insurgent group that includes al-Qaida in Iraq has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
Major Tom Earnhardt, a spokesman for the 82nd, says the soldiers were members of the 5th Squadron of the 73rd Cavalry Regiment. Earnhardt says the unit was sent to Iraq last August.
Earnhardt says a search of recent records shows the attack is the deadliest the 82nd Airborne has experienced in recent years.
Of the 20 wounded in the attack on Task Force Lightning in Diyala province, 15 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne were treated and returned to duty while five others were evacuated to a medical
facility for further care.
An Iraqi civilian also was wounded.
