KABUL (AP) - NATO says a U.S. service member has been killed in an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan. It did not give any further details of yesterday's attack.
The latest death brings to 16 the number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan this month. October was the deadliest month for the U.S. military in the eight-year war with 58 service members killed.
Meanwhile, the Interior Ministry says a remote-controlled bomb hidden in a water truck exploded in the eastern Afghan province of Khost, which borders Pakistan, killing three people including two children.
The ministry says another two children and one man have been wounded in the Tuesday morning attack.
Taliban violence against U.S. and NATO soldiers and Afghan civilians continues to rise.
