3 American soldiers, 1 US contractor killed in Afghanistan

Four Americans were killed and three others wounded Monday by a roadside bomb near Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, military officials said.

A bomber targeted a convoy carrying foreign troops outside Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan on Monday, two Afghan officials said, after the Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide blast. Also, activists in Sudan say attempts by security forces to quash a protest set off widespread violence, killing at least six people since Saturday.

This was the third bomb attack in the city in three days, all of them claimed by Islamic State's local affiliate, Khorasan Province (ISKP). The base in Bagram district is located in northern Parwan province and serves as the main US air facility in the country.

In accordance with US Department of Defense policy, the name of the service members killed in action are being withheld until 24 hours after notification of next of kin is complete, the statement added.

Three other service members were hurt, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance said. Abdul Shakor Qudosi, the district administrative chief in Bagram, said American soldiers opened fire immediately after their convoy was bombed.

Her biggest fear was that a judge would take her son away because of her mental health issues, according to relatives. Now, less than a month later, authorities said Rini pretended to be Pitzen, a boy who had been missing since 2011.

A USA contractor working alongside troops in Afghanistan has been found alive after a blast that killed three American service members and wounded three others.

The Taliban have held talks with a US envoy in recent months while continuing to carry out daily attacks on Afghan forces.

The bombing was the deadliest incident for Americans in Afghanistan since November, when a roadside bomb attack in the country's eastern Ghazni province led to the deaths of four USA servicemembers.
