US soldier killed in Iraq

A US soldier has been killed in action in western Iraq, the military has said in a statement.

    Iraq is witnessing more violence with elections nearing

    The statement from marines based in the town of Falluja said only that the soldier, assigned to the First Marine Expeditionary Force, was killed on Tuesday in al-Anbar province, west of Baghdad.

    It gave no other details, in keeping with standard practice.

    Al-Anbar province, within which Falluja falls, has witnessed some of the fiercest resistance to US-led forces.

    Despite a bloody assault on Falluja late last year, US hopes of crushing the resistance has largely not materialised.
