The Pentagon updated its official Iraq war casualty list on Sunday, putting the number of Americans dead at 38.

A spokesman said the list lags events on the battlefield by 48 hours or more, however, meaning the total does not include four soldiers killed in a suicide bombing on Saturday and three Marines killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

Among the 38 dead, 30 Americans were killed by hostile fire and eight others died in accidents and other "non-hostile" incidents.

Some 104 Americas are listed as wounded but that number is considered very tentative, the spokesman said.

In addition, 17 Americans are missing in action and seven are prisoners of war.
