  1. Fresh off the news-wire

    Fourteen marines and their civilian translator have been killed in a roadside bombing in north-western Iraq, the US military says.
    It is one of the deadliest attacks on US forces since the 2003 invasion.
    It happened near the city of Haditha, in the same area as an incident on Monday in which six US marines were killed by hostile gunfire.
    The city is near the Syrian border in an area that has seen frequent insurgent assaults against US troops.
    The military said one other marine was wounded in the bombing.
