US military: American soldier dies in Iraq

The U.S. military says an American soldier has died in Iraq of noncombat related injuries.

The military released a statement on Monday saying the Multi-National Corps-Iraq solider died on November 2. It did not give the cause of death.

The statement says the name of the soldier is being withheld pending notification of next of kin and that the incident is currently under investigation.

The death raises to at least 4,356 the number of U.S. military personnel who have died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003. That’s according to an Associated Press count.
