The US military says an American soldier has been killed in a roadside bombing in Iraq.
A statement says the Multi-National Division, Baghdad soldier died when the blast struck the soldier's vehicle Saturday night in eastern Baghdad.
The death raises to at least 4,224 the number of US military personnel who have died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003. That's according to an Associated Press count. The statement does not identify the soldier pending notification of relatives.
