A roadside bomb struck a military vehicle in northeast Baghdad on Thursday, killing five U.S. soldiers, three Iraqi civilians and an Iraqi interpreter, raising the death toll for US troops to 14 killed over the past 48 hours.

Two other separate roadside bombings had claimed the lives of six more on Wednesday--two U.S. soldiers were killed and four were wounded in an attack south of Baghdad, and four other U.S. soldiers were killed and one wounded in a western neighborhood of the capital.

Two US troops were killed while conducting combat operations in Anbar province on Wednesday, and a rocket-propelled grenade killed one soldier and wounded three others north of Baghdad.

The U.S. deaths raised to at least 3,545 the number of U.S. troops who have died since the war began in 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
