MOSUL, Iraq, June 25 (UPI) -- Three U.S. soldiers and an interpreter died in a roadside bombing in northern Iraq and two more U.S. troops died in Baghdad's Sadr City, officials said.

The attack on the soldiers Tuesday night in Ninewa Province came after a bomb was detonated at a Mosul police station earlier in the day, killing a police officer and a boy, The New York Times reported.

At least 90 people were wounded in the car-bomb blast was carried out by al-Qaida in Mesopotamia, a Sunni insurgent group.

Two U.S. Embassy staff members also died in the Sadr City bombing that rocked a municipal building Tuesday, CNN reported.

At least 25 U.S. armed forces personnel have been killed in Iraq in June, compared to 19 in May, reported Icasualties.org.
