BAGHDAD, Iraq – A roadside bomb killed one U.S. soldier and wounded another as they were escorting a fuel convoy in northern Iraq (search), the military said Sunday.
U.S. Army spokesman Master Sgt. Robert Powell said the bomb exploded around 4 p.m. Saturday near the city of Beiji (search), about 90 miles south of the northern city of Mosul.
Two soldiers were wounded and one died later Saturday. He was part of a patrol from the U.S. 1st Infantry Division but his identity was not immediately released.
The other soldier was hospitalized in stable condition.
The soldier's death raises the toll of U.S. military personnel killed in Iraq to 904 since the war began, according to an Associated Press tally.
