BAGHDAD, Iraq

More than 2,660 Iraqi civilians were killed in Baghdad in September, according to new Health Ministry figures _ 400 more than the month before despite an intensified U.S.-Iraqi sweep aimed at reining in violence.

A U.S. soldier died Wednesday from a roadside bomb while patrolling in Baghdad. That brought to 40 the number of Americans killed across Iraq the past 11 days _ a pace not seen since the U.S. attack on the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah in November 2004.

A total of 2,667 civilians in Baghdad died violent deaths during September, two senior Health Ministry officials told The Associated Press this week, based on an official monthly report from the ministry to the Cabinet.

By comparison, 2,222 people died violently in August in Baghdad, according to a U.N. report published in September, which was also based on official statistics from the Health Ministry.

U.S. troops have taken a heavy blow in the growing violence. In September, 71 Americans were killed _ 28 in Baghdad _ the second deadliest month this year after April, when 76 died. The number of U.S. wounded in September was 776, the highest since the Fallujah siege.
