BAGHDAD -- Bombs exploded today outside a popular falafel restaurant in Baghdad and a police station near the Syrian border as Iraq's bloodshed claimed at least 20 more lives.

A U.S. soldier, a British soldier and an Iraqi journalist were among those reported killed.

The U.S. military said the soldier was killed and two were wounded Wednesday when a bomb exploded in southwest Baghdad. At least 3,504 U.S. personnel have been killed since the start of the war in 2003, according to the website, which tracks U.S. casualties.
