We study radiative parton energy loss in an expanding quark-gluon
plasma with magnetic monopoles.
We find that for realistic number density of thermal monopoles
obtained in lattice simulations parton rescatterings on
monopoles can considerably
enhance energy loss for plasma produced in AA collisions at
RHIC and LHC energies. However, contrary to previous expectations,
monopoles do not lead to the surface dominance of energy loss.
