April 24, 2007


— An infantryman from Florida has become the latest Fort Riley soldier killed in Iraq, the Pentagon said Monday.

The Department of Defense said Pfc. Christopher M. North, 21, of Sarasota, Fla., died Saturday from his wounds after his unit was hit with roadside bombs and small arms fire during combat in Baghdad. North became the 95th Fort Riley soldier killed since the war started in 2003.

North was the second 4th Brigade soldier to be killed in recent days.

Army officials said Pfc. Jason Morales, 20, of La Puente, Calif., was killed Wednesday in Baghdad while on patrol.
