Three U.S. soldiers die in Afghanistan

One soldier with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was killed during a hostile incident Saturday in eastern Afghanistan while two other ISAF servicemen were killed in a non-combat-related incident in southern Afghanistan on Sunday, said a statement of the alliance.

Col. Wayne Shanks, an ISAF spokesman, also confirmed the service members were from the United States.

However, it did not specify the exact locations of the incidents and provide no further information.

Conflicts and violence have left 359 international troops dead so far this year as some 10,000 foreign soldiers, including some 68,000 U.S. troops, have been deployed in war-torn Afghanistan combating insurgency and helping with reconstruction.
