BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Five U.S. Marines were killed by a roadside bomb in western Iraq, the military said Friday.

The Marines were killed Thursday while conducting combat operations near the volatile Anbar province town of Haqlaniyah, 90 miles northwest of Baghdad.

The Marines were assigned to the 2nd Marine Division's Regimental Combat Team 2. Their identities were not released.

At least 1,689 U.S. military members have died since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
