Another American trooper has lost his life by wounds sustained from a bomb blast in southern Iraq, the US military says.

"A US service member was killed Sunday by wounds sustained from an improvised explosive device while conducting convoy operations in southern Iraq," AFP quoted a Monday military statement as saying.

The Sunday death brings to 4,441 the number of US soldier killed in the war-torn country since the 2003 US-led invasion.

The statement did not reveal the exact location of the attack and the name of the soldier.

Around 60 American soldiers were killed in Iraq in 2010 as some 50,000 US combat troops continue to remain in the country.

A security accord between Baghdad and Washington requires that all American troops leave Iraq by 2012.
