Roadside bomb kills US soldier in northern Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) - The U.S. military says an American soldier has
been killed and two others were wounded when a roadside bomb
detonated near their vehicle in northern Iraq.

The military says the Multi-National Division-North soldier was
killed on Monday. Two others were wounded in the attack that
occurred in Iraq's northern Ninevah province.

The military said in a statement on Tuesday the name of the
soldier is being withheld pending notification of next of kin and
that the incident is under investigation.

The death raises to at least 4,351 the number of U.S. military
personnel who have died in the Iraq war since it began in March
2003. That's according to an Associated Press count.

Meanwhile, Iraqi police say a car bomb at gas station in the
country's west killed four people. And in western Baghdad, one
person was killed and wounded when a bomb attached to a minibus
exploded.
