KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - NATO says a suicide attack has killed three coalition troops in eastern Afghanistan. The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the assault.
A coalition statement says the three troops died this morning in the province of Kunar. It provided no further details, though initial reports said the attack targeted a NATO foot patrol near the headquarters of the provincial government.
A spokesman for the local government says two suicide bombers on foot detonated their explosives outside the provincial council building. The spokesman says at least one Afghan civilian was killed and three were wounded in the blast.
