2 US troops, 11 Afghan civilians killed in southern Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Two U.S. troops and at least 11 civilians have died in violence across southern Afghanistan today, including one attack in which a suicide bomber wearing a burqa blew himself up in a bazaar.

NATO says the two American service members were killed in an explosion in southern Afghanistan, but did not disclose details or the location because relatives had not yet been notified.

At least 33 troops serving with the international coalition have been killed so far this month, 23 of them American.
