Special Ops Soldier Killed in Afghanistan

A special operations force soldier was killed in Afghanistan on Friday when the vehicle he was driving was hit by a roadside bomb, the U.S. military said. U.S. Central Command said in a statement the attack was near Asadabad, in eastern Afghanistan. It gave no more details. Afghan and U.S. forces are scouring mountains and villages in that part of the country as part of a new operation against militants called “Mountain Resolve,” villagers reported. At least four Afghans were killed and three hurt on Wednesday when their car was blown up by a remote-controlled bomb apparently intended for a U.S. vehicle close to a U.S. base in the area. More than 350 people, including civilians, Afghan troops, rebels, aid workers and at least 11 U.S.-led soldiers or CIA operatives, have been killed in attacks in Afghanistan since early August.
