7 U.S. Marines killed in attack near Fallujah

A suicide bomber killed seven Marines and three Iraqi national guardsmen on Monday near Fallujah, just hours after the U.S. military announced it would try to find ways to restore security in the insurgent-controlled city. The soldiers and the Marines were traveling in a convoy around 10:30 a.m. when a suicide bomber drove by and detonated a car loaded with explosives, destroying their Humvees. The names of the dead were not immediately released. It was the deadliest attack on the U.S. military in more than four months.
