Jan 6 (Reuters) - A U.S. soldier died from combat-related injuries sustained while on patrol in Baghdad, the U.S. military said in a statement.

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 4,372

Britain 179

Other nations 139

IRAQIS:

Military Between 4,900 and 6,375#

Civilians Between 94,939 and 103,588*

# = 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)
