A US soldier apparently killed five of his comrades on Monday at a US base in the heart of Baghdad.

The US military admitted that the shooting took place at Camp Liberty, near Baghdad International Airport, but gave no further details on the attack. …

The US death toll for April was 19 – the highest in seven months – and brings the total number of soldiers killed during the invasion and occupation of Iraq since March 2003 to 4,287.
