U.S. soldier killed by suicide bomber

BAGHDAD (AP) - A U.S. soldier has been killed by a roadside bomb in a Shiite slum in Baghdad.

A spokesman for the U.S. military says the bomb targeted an American convoy.

The spokesman says there were no other casualties.

Also today, a suicide bomber on a bicycle killed 16 people in the northern city of Mosul. The attack came during a mass rally against Israel's airstrikes in Gaza.

The rally was one of several throughout Iraq today to demand a strong response from Arab governments to the Israeli action.
