A group of U.S. troops were posted at a checkpoint on a bridge near Baghdad Sunday when a suicide bomber detonated a car bomb from below, killing three American soldiers and wounding six others.  The BBC reports that this latest attack brings the death toll of U.S. troops to at least 28 already this month.
