      More than 100 US soldiers in Iraq struck with pneumonia
      The US Army has dispatched a team of medical experts to Iraq to
      investigate a spate of serious pneumonia cases among its troops.

      Military officials say two soldiers have died of the pneumonia and
      more than 100 are ill.

      Army medical authorities say they are concerned because the pneumonia
      is attacking healthy, young soldiers, which means it is likely to be
      a virulent strain.

      Authorities say there is no evidence of chemical, biological, or
      environmental toxins involved in the troops' illness, and SARS
      [severe acute respiratory syndrome] has also been ruled out.
