Army officials today say they've confirmed that 15 soldiers were
killed -- not 16 as had been widely reported since the attack.

An Army spokesman at the Pentagon says notification teams have
been sent to the families of 15 soldiers confirmed to have been
killed, including one who survived the initial attack but later
died from wounds.

U.S. Central Command issued a statement Sunday from Baghdad that
15 soldiers had been killed. But later, officials reported that one
of the wounded had died -- raising the total to 16.

The dead included four soldiers from Fort Carson, Colorado.
