KABUL (AP) - Two NATO troopers, including an American, have been killed by bombs in Afghanistan.
A NATO statement said a U.S. soldier died of wounds suffered in a bombing Sunday in southern Afghanistan.
The statement said a second service member died of wounds in a roadside bombing today, also in the south.
At least 16 U.S. service members have been killed in Afghanistan so far this month - matching the American death toll for all of October in 2008.
The latest deaths followed a fierce weekend assault on a pair of remote outposts in the northeastern province of Nuristan in which eight U.S. service members were killed and about 20 Afghan security troopers were captured. It was the deadliest attack against U.S. forces in Afghanistan in more than a year.
