BAGHDAD, Iraq_A U.S. soldier was killed Monday by a roadside bomb, a day
after two Marines and a sailor were killed in combat in the restive Anbar
province, the U.S. military said.

A military statement said the soldier died when the vehicle he was riding in
was struck by an improvised explosive device, the Army's term for homemade
bomb, north of Baghdad. It gave no other details.

Two Marines and a sailor, assigned to the Regimental Combat Team 7, "died
from wounds sustained due to enemy action" on Sunday in Anbar, an earlier
statement said. Anbar province is the stronghold of the Sunni Arab
insurgency west of Baghdad.

The statement gave no other details.

At least 2,610 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of
the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count. The
figure includes seven military civilians. At least 2,073 died as a result of
hostile action, according to the military's numbers.
