BAGHDAD — A Multi-National Division-Baghdad Soldier was killed and one wounded when their unit was attacked by an improvised explosive device and small arms fire in an eastern section of the Iraqi capital Sept. 29.

Units operating in this area of Baghdad continue to conduct targeted raids and clearing operations in order to disrupt insurgent and militia elements operating in this section of Baghdad. Destroying these cells stabilizes the neighborhoods MND-Baghdad units continue to operate in.

The Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin and release by the Department of Defense.
