4 US Troops Killed in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Four U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan today.

NATO says three died in insurgent attacks and one was killed by a homemade bomb.

The deaths bring the number of international forces killed in Afghanistan this month to 42, including 28 Americans, according to a count by The Associated Press.

Afghan officials say fighting around the country this weekend has killed five Afghan soldiers and at least 17 militants, including a senior Taliban commander.

And a roadside bomb in northern Afghanistan killed former guerrilla leader who battled Soviet invaders decades ago. He had recently been serving in an advisory role as a tribal elder. Many veterans of the Soviet invasion have been targeted by the Taliban for allying themselves with the Kabul government.
