Roadside Bomb Kills US Soldier in Iraq

The U.S. military in Iraq says a roadside bomb has killed one of its troops south of the capital, Baghdad.

The military says the soldier was killed Thursday when his vehicle hit the bomb during a combat patrol near Iskandariyah.

The United States invaded Iraq in 2003, citing concerns about alleged weapons of mass destruction programs. No such weapons were found.
