It appeared to be the deadliest attack on American forces since June 2017, when an Afghan army soldier shot and killed three US soldiers in an insider attack in the Achin district of the eastern Nangarhar province.
Three U.S. troops were killed and four Americans were wounded when a roadside bomb exploded Tuesday in central Afghanistan, marking the deadliest day for U.S. forces in the country this year.
The military said that three other service members were wounded when the bomb went off near the city of Ghazni.
The wounded were evacuated to receive medical care. Ghazni has become the most hotly contested province in Afghanistan, which is no small feat given the Taliban's mastery in strongholds such as Helmand and Kunduz.
The Taliban, emboldened by its successes in Ghazni and the surrounding provinces, then launched an assault on the districts of Jaghuri and Malistan. While the Taliban is guilty of inflating casualties that it inflicts on Afghan and United States forces, the operations themselves often can be confirmed in the Afghan press.
Karachi attack: Two dead in attack on Chinese consulate
Three gunmen and four people were killed in an hour-long shootout near the Chinese consulate in southern port city of Karachi. China has been expressing concern over the security of citizens working on the CPEC and other Chinese projects.
American-led combat operations against the Taliban officially ended in 2014, but some U.S. troops remain in the country to provide training and assistance to Afghan forces, which do most of the fighting. Ghazni was the only province that didn't hold parliamentary elections last month.
No terrorist group has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
That attack came a few days after a suicide bomber killed 55 religious scholars gathered in the Afghan capital, Kabul, to celebrate the holiday marking the birth of Islam's prophet, Muhammad. The great majority of US forces withdrew by the end of 2014, but those still in the country often are involved in supporting combat situations on the ground as well as by air.
Earlier this month, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said more than 28,000 Afghan police and soldiers had been killed since 2015.
The total number of USA military casualties during the 17-year Afghan war has been more than 2,400.
