American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2005 – Two Marines assigned to 1st Marine Expeditionary Force were killed Feb. 2 while conducting security and stability operations in Iraq's Anbar province.

The names of the deceased are being withheld until next of kin are notified.

Meanwhile, in Mosul, Iraqi Maj. Gen. Ahmad Kalif Mohammed al-Jaburi, chief of police in that northern Iraq city, negotiated the release of 84 individuals from the custody of multinational forces Feb. 2. An investigation had found they were not "active member participants in the terrorists' minority," according to a Multinational Force Iraq statement.

The individuals were turned over to Mosul police at the Task Force Freedom Detention Center in southern Mosul and later released back to their families.
