U.S. officials initially said a number of rocket and mortar rounds were fired at the base in the northern city of Mosul on Tuesday, but a militant group claimed a suicide bomber was behind the attack, in which 66 people were wounded.
"A suicide bomber has not been ruled out," a U.S. Army official said later in Washington.
Giving the latest casualty update, a U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad said 15 U.S. soldiers, five U.S. civilians and contractors and two Iraqi security force members were killed. Forty-two of the wounded were U.S. military personnel, he said.
