Two Marines killed in Fallujah fighting
By Associated Press, 4/7/2004 12:40

FALLUJAH, Iraq (AP) Two more U.S. Marines were killed over the past two days in fighting in Fallujah to uproot Sunni Muslim insurgents there, the military said Wednesday.

The deaths bring the total known Marine death toll in the battle for the city to three.

I think these are new casualties. I haven't seen them reported yet on DU.

1. These are indeed new
CBS News also has these two reported.

There's no way the fighting is as heavy as they say and only two folks have been killed. This happened during "major combat" as well. You'd hear very little about casualties for days, then when you go back you'd see that 8-10 were dying each day.
