NATO says 3 US soldiers killed in roadside bombings in southern Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – NATO says three U.S. troops have died in two roadside bombings in the south.

The latest deaths on Sunday increase to six the number of Americans who have died so far in Afghanistan this month. NATO did not disclose the details of the deaths.

Last month a record 66 American troops were killed, compared with 44 in July last year. A record total of 103 international troops, including Americans, died in June, more than triple the figure for the same month in 2009.

Meanwhile, the military coalition said three Afghan civilians were killed by insurgent attacks or bombs Saturday, while five NATO service members – three Americans and two Danes – were killed the same day.
