An American soldier and four Iraqi civilians have been killed in a suicide bombing north of Baghdad.

Military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Steve Stover says the suicide bomber struck U.S.-Iraqi forces as they were responding to a roadside bomb that wounded an Iraqi in Tarmiyah.

He says two U.S. soldiers and an interpreter also were among 24 people who were wounded.

The military is blaming al-Qaida in Iraq for the attack.
