Five US soldiers were killed by a bomb in Afghanistan Thursday, as the Taliban rejected a US claim to have killed the fighters who shot down on of its helicopters killing 38 troops.

A US military officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the soliders, first reported only as part of NATO, were Americans.

At least 387 coalition soldiers have now been killed in Afghanistan so far this year, compared to 711 deaths in 2010, according to an AFP tally based on that kept by independent website icasualties.org.
