BAGHDAD, Iraq - (AP) An American Marine has died of injuries
received when a roadside bomb exploded near his vehicle in Iraq, the U.S.
military said Wednesday.
The Marine, whose name was not released, was assigned to Regimental
Combat Team 2 of the 2nd Marine Division, which is based in Anbar province
west of Baghdad.
The bombing occurred Monday near the western Iraqi town of Rutbah
and the Marine died the following day, the U.S. statement said.
The latest death brings to at least 2,055 the number of U.S.
military service members who have died since the beginning of the Iraq war
in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
