KABUL (AP) - The U.S. military says three American troops have been killed in two incidents in southern Afghanistan.
The deaths bring to six the number of U.S. deaths announced by the military on Wednesday. That pushes to at least 32 the number of dead American troops in August.
The statement says two of those killed Wednesday in southern Afghanistan died after a gunfire attack on their patrol. Another died in a "hostile attack."
