Bomb kills US soldier in Afghanistan
A bomb attack killed a US soldier in southern Afghanistan, the NATO-led force said Friday, capping another bloody week for foreign forces battling Taliban militants.
Guerrillas attacked an Italian convoy in Kabul on Thursday, killing 6 Italian troops and 10 Afghan civilians, and wounding over 50 others.
Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi as a result called for foreign troops to depart Afghanistan sooner rather than later. It had already been decided that 500 of Italy's 3000-strong military mission would soon go home.
