US military says 4 soldiers were killed in Baghdad

Bad news for the US military.
BAGHDAD -- Four U.S. soldiers were killed in the combat on the eve of the withdrawal of American troops from Baghdad and other Iraq cities, the U.S. military said, as Iraqi forces on Tuesday assumed control for security in urban areas.
The U.S. military said the four soldiers served with the Multi-National Division-Baghdad but did not provide further details pending notification of their families. It said they died as a "result of combat related injuries."
The withdrawal that was completed on Monday is part of a U.S.-Iraqi security pact and marks the first major step toward withdrawing all American forces from the country by Dec. 31, 2011. President Obama has said all combat troops will be gone by the end of August 2010.
The Iraqi government has named June 30 "National Sovereignty Day" and declared a public holiday.
President Jalal Talabani said the day could not have happened without the help of the United States, which invaded Iraq in 2003 and ousted Saddam Hussein - who was later convicted by an Iraqi court and executed in Dec. 2006.
