An Iraqi civilian was killed in a US helicopter attack in Mosul on Friday, as the US military reported that two of its soldiers were killed in combat operations in the capital Baghdad.

The Iraqi civilian was killed and five others wounded Friday morning when a US helicopter bombed a residential area in Mosul, 402 kilometres north of Baghdad, the independent Voices of Iraq news agency reported citing an official security source.

Two women and two children were among the wounded in the attack on Mosul's south-eastern Mithaq neighbourhood, General Abdul-Kareem al- Juburi, police operations director of Ninevah province, told Voices of Iraq.

There was no immediate comment from the US army.

The US military in Iraq stated Friday that two US soldiers died of wounds sustained in separate explosive attacks in Baghdad Thursday. A third soldier was injured in one of the attacks, the statement added.
