14 Marines Killed in Iraq

8-3-05 - Fourteen more US Marines have been killed in Iraq. The military says they and a civilian interpreter all died early today in a roadside bomb attack in western Iraq.

Their deaths come on top of the more than two-dozen other American deaths in Iraq in the past week and a half. They include seven other Marines who died Monday. They were all taking part in operations aimed at cutting off a major infiltration route used by foreign fighters.

Six of the Marines killed Monday were gunned down in the city of Haditha -- near the scene of today's deaths.

More than 1,800 US service members have died in Iraq since the war began.
