US military says 2 American soldiers died in Iraq from non-combat related injuries

BAGHDAD (AP) — The U.S. military says two American soldiers have died in Iraq from injuries sustained in separate incidents unrelated to combat.

Tuesday's military statement also says the deaths, which occurred on Monday, are under investigation.

The deaths raise to at least 4,396 the number of U.S. military personnel who have died in Iraq since the war began in March 2003. That's according to an Associated Press count.
