Iraqi militants killed an American soldier they have held hostage for nearly three months, saying the killing was because the U.S. government did not change its policy in Iraq, Al-Jazeera television reported Tuesday.

The report did not say when Maupin was killed. Maupin was captured during an ambush on a convoy west of Baghdad on April 9.
