A U.S. soldier was killed and another wounded by a roadside bomb blast south of Baghdad, while three Iraqi police died in a similar attack, officials said Thursday.

The U.S. soldiers belonged to the Multi-National Division Baghdad and were targeted Wednesday, the military said in a statement. The name of the soldier who was killed is being withheld pending next-of-kin notification.

At least 2,237 U.S. military personnel have died since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count

North of Baghdad, three Iraqi soldiers were killed and four wounded by another roadside bomb on Wednesday afternoon, police Lt. Amir al-Ahbabi said.

The attack happened in the Ishaki area on the Baghdad-Mosul highway, about 55 miles north of the Iraqi capital.
