Off the Wire:
WASHINGTON, Nov. 5, 2009 -- Newswire services this afternoon reported that the U.S. military says two American soldiers have died in Iraq -- one in combat and one of noncombat-related injuries.
According to an Associated Press report, the military released a statement late Wednesday saying two Multi-National Corps-Iraq soldiers died on November 4. The statement did not describe the circumstances of either death.
The deaths raise to at least 4,359 the number of U.S. military personnel who have died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003. That's according to an AP count.
