U.S. Death Toll Tops 3,500 in Iraq
BAGHDAD -- Another U.S. soldier was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq, the military said Thursday, pushing the four-year death toll for American forces to 3,501, according to an Associated Press tally.
The toll includes 23 deaths in the first six days of June, a relatively high casualty rate, almost double that of June 2006.
The Multi-National Division-Baghdad soldier was killed Wednesday when a roadside bomb exploded during combat operations in a southwestern section of the capital, a military statement said. It added that two other soldiers were wounded in the attack and evacuated to a coalition medical facility.
