U.S. SERVICE MEMBERS KILLED
U.S. soldiers keep watch after a suicide bombing attack on a NATO convoy in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday left two American service members dead. A member of the Taliban rammed a vehicle filled with explosives into the convoy of foreign forces in the restive province of Kandahar, officials said. The service members, whose names were not released, were part of an international force referred to as the Train, Advise and Assist Command south, a reference to their location in the country. The combined U.S. and NATO troop contingent currently in Afghanistan is about 13,500. The Trump administration is deciding whether to send about 4,000 or more U.S. soldiers to Afghanistan in an attempt to stem Taliban gains.
