Two American soldiers have been killed and nine wounded after a gunman in Iraqi army uniform attacked them at an Iraqi base, US officials said.
"Initial reports indicate 11 US soldiers were engaged with small arms fire, killing two and wounding nine," the military said.
They were the first American soldiers killed since US forces formally ended combat operations in Iraq a week ago, more than seven years after the invasion that ousted dictator Saddam Hussein.
The gunfight resulted from an argument between an Iraqi soldier and US personnel during a training session run by the Americans, according to Iraqi police and military sources.
