The US military says a soldier has died in a vehicle accident near al-Asad. The military says the soldier was killed when the vehicle he was traveling in rolled over near al-Asad, home to the second largest air base in Iraq. The military has not released the name of the soldier, pending the notification of relatives. The soldier died on Saturday. Sunday's announcement raises the number of the US military losses in Iraq to at least 4,075 since the Iraq war started in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
