French insurgents killed in Iraq.
Three Frenchmen have died fighting with insurgents against US-led troops in Iraq, reports say.
The men, all of Arab origin, were killed in the country over recent months as the insurgency has flared.
Two of the men were aged 19 and the third was 24 years old, a French official said.
Authorities estimate that around a dozen Frenchmen of North African or Arab background have travelled to Iraq to join the insurgency.
