Four US-led troopers killed in south Afghanistan

Incidents in southern Afghanistan have killed four US-led troops who had been enlisted by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).

Two of the troopers were killed on Saturday, one in a militant attack and the other in a roadside bomb attack, the US-led military alliance of NATO said without providing more details.

The other two died on Sunday in a traffic accident.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident on Saturday, a US-led helicopter made a forced landing in south Afghanistan, the coalition forces said.

According to the independent website, the latest deaths brought to 3056 the number of the US-led foreign troopers killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001.

Insecurity continues to rise across Afghanistan, because of the presence of around 130,000 US-led forces in the country.
