A US soldier was killed in fighting in the volatile Anbar province, the American military said Saturday. The soldier, who was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 1st Armored Division, died Friday from wounds sustained due to enemy action in the insurgent stronghold that stretches west from Baghdad to the Iraqi borders with Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, according to a statement. The soldier's name was not released pending notification of relatives. At least 2,887 members of the US military have died since the Iraq war started in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
