The U.S. military is announcing another U.S. death in Iraq, bringing the October total to 101. In a brief statement, the military says the latest casualty was a member of a police brigade who was killed by small arms fire Monday in eastern Baghdad.

Earlier, it said a Marine died from injuries sustained during combat Sunday west of Baghdad.

The U.S. is now six deaths away from seeing October tie for the third deadliest month there since the war began in 2003.
