3 US troops killed in suicide blast in Afghanistan

KABUL (AP) - Three U.S. troops have been killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan.

A spokesman for NATO forces says a car packed with explosives rammed a military convoy in a province north of Kabul. The three who died served with NATO's International Security Assistance Force.

The Afghan Interior Ministry says three civilians were also killed in the attack and two others were wounded.

Elsewhere in Afghanistan, the U.S. military says a convoy of Afghan and American troops killed the driver of a car that ignored warnings to stop.

And U.S. forces say they killed eight Taliban fighters in a clash yesterday.
