U.S. Soldier Killed In Roadside Bombing

U-S commanders in Iraq say another American has been killed by a roadside bomb.

A brief announcement says only that his vehicle was hit by a bomb today southwest of Baghdad.

The death brings to at least 23-hundred-65 the number of Americans who have died in Iraq since the war began.

A count by The Associated Press shows that at least 36 soldiers have died in Iraq so far this month, compared to 31 all of last month.
