NATO: U.S. troop killed; Afghan govt: Bus hits bomb, killing 25

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - NATO says another U.S. service member has died in a rapidly rising monthly death toll.

NATO says the service member was killed in an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan yesterday, but didn't give details.

Meanwhile, Afghan officials say a packed bus hit a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan today, killing 25 people aboard.

A spokesman for the Nimroz provincial government, Nazir Ahmad, says the packed bus was traveling on a main highway headed toward the capital of Kabul when it struck the explosive around Delaram - a volatile area near the borders of Helmand and Farah provinces.
