The 10 soldiers killed were traveling west of Baghdad, in their vehicle, when a devastating bomb blew their car up.
Adding this massacre to those in the recent weeks, a frightening death toll seems to have been reached, for both Iraqi and US troops.
More then 68 US troops died this month, making it one of the bloodiest, with extremely high casualty rates, since January 2005.
Since the war in Iraq started, in 2003, more than 3,000 soldiers of the U.S.-led coalition and nearly 650 civilian contractors have died. Estimates of Iraqi citizen deaths are controversial and range from 40,000 to several hundred thousand deaths.
In addition to the human casualties suffered in the war, the US have also lost a considerable amount of military equipment.
