Also today, the U.S. military said three of its soldiers were killed on May 17 when their patrol struck a roadside bomb in the town of Al-Mussayyib, south of Baghdad.


Meanwhile, massive search is continuing for three missing U.S. soldiers believed to have been abducted by insurgents linked to Al-Qaeda.
