Attack kills 2 US service members in Afghanistan

KABUL (AP) - U.S. forces say two American service members have been killed in a bomb attack in southern Afghanistan.

NATO forces said the insurgent attack occurred Friday but did not provide further details. Navy Lt. Robert Carr confirmed those killed were American.

The United States has pushed thousands of additional troops into the volatile south in an attempt to rout out the resurgent Taliban. The U.S. has 59,000 troops in Afghanistan, nearly double the number a year ago.
