Missing US soldier 'found dead'


Iraqi police say they have found the body of one of three US soldiers missing in Iraq since 12 May.

The body was found in the Euphrates river in Musayyib, south of Baghdad. The US has not confirmed its identity.

The men disappeared after an ambush on a patrol south of Baghdad, and have been the subject of a massive search.

In separate developments, 20 Iraqis have died in a suicide bomb attack on a cafe and US forces reported the deaths of another nine service personnel.

The cafe blast, in which 15 people were also injured, was in Mandali, a town of mainly Shia Muslim Kurds near the Iranian border.

Seven of the nine US troops killed on Tuesday died in four separate roadside bomb and shooting attacks in and around the capital Baghdad. The other two were marines killed in Anbar. .......
