4 US-led forces killed in Afghanistan

Four NATO soldiers including two Americans have been killed in southern Afghanistan, bringing to 14 the number to have died in two days in the war-torn country.

Two US-led soldiers were killed in bomb attacks in separate places, another foreign soldier in a firefight and the fourth in a militant attack, AFP reported quoting a NATO statement.

The latest deaths occurred on Tuesday and brought to 69 the number of US-led troops to have been killed so far this month, with 43 of them American.

June is on track to becoming one of the deadliest months for US-led forces in the Afghan war that started nearly 9 years ago.

Meanwhile, ten NATO troops were killed in attacks and a helicopter crash on Monday.

The Americans died Tuesday in separate attacks, said Lt. Col. Joseph T. Breasseale, a US military spokesman who did not provide further details.

The US military has warned that casualties will inevitably increase as foreign forces expand their attacks against the Taliban militants.
