In eastern Afghanistan, attackers killed three U.S. soldiers Monday, a Western official said.

The deaths occurred just south of a base in Ghazni province when an explosion hit the vehicle the soldiers were traveling in, said the official who asked to remain anonymous because he is not authorized to discuss the incident with media outlets.

Two Americans were wounded as well, the official said.

The NATO-led force reported that three service members died in the bombing.

More than 1,900 Americans and another 1,000-plus allied troops have died in the 10-year-old conflict.
