3 US soldiers from Nato force killed by insurgents in eastern Afghanistan
KABUL (Reuters) - Three United States soldiers were killed in Afghanistan's eastern borderlands on Sunday, US and Nato officials said, the first Nato combat deaths this month.
The soldiers, from the Nato-led International Security Assistance Force, were killed by insurgents in Paktia province, a US official told Reuters.
The last Nato soldier to be killed in action was killed late last month.
Paktia is one of several provinces that border Pakistan and have endured some of the highest levels of fighting during the US-led 12-year war in Afghanistan.
