(Reuters) - A second U.S marine has been killed in Iraq, CNN
The Marine died at about 4 p.m. Washington time (11 a.m.
British time) on Friday, the network said.
On Thursday, in the first day of fighting, one U.S. Marine
was killed in action. Eight British and four U.S. soldiers died in a
helicopter crash in Kuwait.
U.S. Marines met unexpected resistance when they attacked
a key southern Iraqi port earlier on Friday.
Iraqi ministers have vowed to "incinerate" the invaders
and asserted that President Saddam had survived an early missile
strike on a leadership bunker.
