In that other place:

The military on Sunday announced the deaths of five more American troops. Three Marines died on Friday “from enemy action” in Anbar province in western Iraq. Two soldiers were killed on Saturday, one in Mosul by a roadside bomb and the other in Baghdad by small arms fire.

On Sunday, the police found 35 bodies across Baghdad, many of the bearing signs of torture and shot at close range, an Interior Ministry official said.
