U.S. soldier killed in attack

May 25, 2006


— A U.S. Army soldier died when his patrol was attacked by small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades in Iraq, the military said Wednesday.

The soldier's convoy was conducting an anti-roadside-bomb operation south of Balad, which is 50 miles north of Baghdad, when Tuesday's attack occurred, the U.S. command said.

The killing raised to at least 2,460 the number of members of the U.S. military who have died since the beginning of the war in 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
