BAGHDAD, Oct 7, 2006 (AFP) - A US soldier was killed in the Iraqi oil
refinery city of Baiji north of the capital, the US military reported
Saturday.

The soldier, part of the 82nd Airborne Division, died during an operation
on Friday in a city known for its strong insurgent presence.

There has been a spike of US casualties in recent days with a score of US
servicemen being killed over the past week.

Since the March 2003 invasion, 2,732 US servicemen have been killed
according to an AFP count based on Pentagon figures.
