Authorities say a soldier from Alabama has been killed in Afghanistan.
The Florence TimesDaily reports that 21-year-old Cpl. Christopher Roger Bell was on a morning patrol in northeastern Afghanistan, when officials said a roadside bomb detonated Saturday.
Officials said three other members of his unit died from injuries sustained in the blast.
Bell was a member of the U.S. Army's 3rd Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, a military police unit stationed at Joint Base Elmenorf-Richardson, in Anchorage, Alaska.
Family members said that he had been in Afghanistan since March.
