    The military issued a statement on Sunday confirming that the last of the five fatalities occurred in the northern city of Mosul when a roadside bomb exploded at about 1245 GMT.

    Three more marines were killed in separate attacks in the western province of al-Anbar earlier on Saturday, one in action and two from wounds received in separate attacks on the same day.

    A fifth marine died when his vehicle crashed into a US tank, causing it to flip over.

    The deaths bring the US toll in Iraq to 963, according to the
