U.S. military officials in Afghanistan say two American soldiers have been killed and another wounded in a roadside bomb attack in southeast Afghanistan.
The U.S. military says the soldiers were in a convoy in Paktika province, near the Pakistani border, when their vehicle was hit by a blast late Friday. The military says an Afghan interpreter was also wounded in the blast.
Friday's bomb attack capped several days of bloody violence in Afghanistan blamed on Taleban rebels.
Officials say the former chief of police of Deshu district in the southern Helmand province was killed Friday by a roadside bomb. A government official was killed Thursday in an ambush in neighboring Zabul province.
Taleban fighters have been waging an insurgency since U.S.-led forces ousted the militia in the aftermath of the September 11th, 2001 attacks on the United States.
