Iraq bomb kills US soldier

A bomb blast has killed one US soldier and injured two others in the Iraqi town of Baquba, north-east of Baghdad. The attack happened late on Sunday, according to a military spokesman. The soldier – from the Fourth Infantry Division – was killed as he and colleagues were guarding the town’s police station, about 70 kilometres (40 miles) from Baghdad. The killing brings to 57 the number of American soldiers killed in attacks since major combat operations ended on 1 May. At around the same time as the Baquba attack two grenades were set off under a couple of lorries close to the UK Government office in Baghdad. Two Iraqis were injured. A coalition spokesperson said the British office had not been the target and that no staff were injured. Full Story
