Three American soldiers were killed in two separate incidents in Iraq, the military said Friday.

Two soldiers from the Military Police were killed in Baghdad on Thursday when their vehicle was blasted by a roadside bomb. A third was wounded.

A Marine also died of wounds on Thursday following combat in Anbar province, where Sunni rebels are fighting in the west.

The deaths brought the total of U.S. troops killed in Iraq to 2,842. Twenty-four were killed in the first nine days of November. In October, 105 were killed, the deadliest month in nearly two years.

President Bush is reassessing his strategy following his Republican party’s loss of both houses of Congress at elections this week that showed voter discontent on Iraq.
