22 American Soldiers Killed Since Friday. At least six more US-led soldiers have lost their lives in separate incidents in the troubled eastern and southern areas of Afghanistan. NATO issued a statement on Tuesday, announcing that four American soldiers were killed in a bombing attack in eastern parts of Afghanistan. In a separate incident, a fifth US soldier died in a militant attack in southern Afghanistan. The deaths bring the number of American troops killed in Afghanistan since Friday to 22. Meanwhile, an Estonian soldier died of injuries sustained in a bomb attack in southern Helmand Province. At least 485 US-led forces have lost their lives in Afghanistan so far this year. The increasing number of troop casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the US and other NATO member states, undermining public support for the continuation of the Afghan war. www.presstv.com
