BEIJING (Reuters) - A U.S. diplomat was killed in a mortar attack near the Baghdad airport early on Sunday, Secretary of State Colin Powell said in a statement.

"I mourn the loss of one of our own today in Baghdad. Assistant Regional Security Officer Ed Seitz was killed in a mortar attack on Camp Victory. Ed was a brave American, dedicated to his country," Powell said in the statement issued while he was flying to China from Japan.

A U.S. soldier was also wounded in the attack, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher told reporters.

It was not immediately clear if Seitz was the first U.S. diplomat to be killed in Iraq, U.S. officials said.
