(KABUL, Afghanistan) – Another suicide attack in Afghanistan has claimed the lives of three more NATO troops Monday. The attack comes just a day after the 2,000th American casualty of the war in Afghanistan.
The insurgent crashed a motorcycle equipped with IEDs into a U.S. military convoy traveling in the eastern province of Khoost. According to local officials, three American ISAF soldiers and 11 civilians, including an ISAF-contracted translator, were killed in the attack. Another 50 or so were injured.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility.
