FACTBOX-Military and civilian deaths in Iraq

April 13 (Reuters) - A roadside bomb killed a U.S. soldier in Salahuddin province north of Baghdad, the U.S. military said in a statement on Sunday.

Five U.S. soldiers were killed in a suicide truck bomb on Friday in Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad. Following are the latest figures for soldiers and civilians killed in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003:



U.S.-LED COALITION FORCES:

United States 4,272

Britain 179

Other nations 139



IRAQIS:

Military Between 4,900 and 6,375#

Civilians Between 91,385 and 99,774*

# = Think-tank estimates for military under Saddam Hussein killed during the 2003 war. No reliable official figures have been issued since new security forces were set up in late 2003.

* = From www.iraqbodycount.net (IBC), run by academics and peace activists, based on reports from at least two media sources. The IBC says on its website the figure underestimates the true number of casualties.

The U.S.-led military coalition toll includes casualties from Iraq and the surrounding area where troops are stationed. (Writing by David Cutler, London Editorial Reference Unit)
