BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Heavy fighting in Iraq over the weekend killed 10 U.S. troops, including five Marines in a day of bloody clashes near the Syrian border, the U.S. military said Sunday.

The deaths brought to 503 the number of American soldiers killed in action in Iraq since the start of the U.S.-led war in March last year to oust Saddam Hussein.

This month’s toll of 104 is higher than the number killed in action in the three-week war that toppled Saddam.
