Suicide Attack Kills 3 NATO Troops

A suicide bombing killed three NATO troops when it struck a patrol in Afghanistan’s eastern Kunar province. NATO did not provide the nationalities of the troops who were killed. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack and said that two insurgents drove vehicles with explosives into the NATO patrol and killed 17 troops. NATO disputed that figure, adding that only one suicide bomber has been confirmed so far and that he was on foot. The Taliban often claim wildly high death tolls in their attacks.
