KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -- NATO says three U.S. service personnel have been killed in a roadside bombing in Afghanistan's volatile south.
NATO spokesman Col. Thomas Collins said a powerful explosion ripped through a NATO convoy Tuesday in southern Kandahar province, the heartland of the insurgent Taliban.
"The convoy struck an IED (improvised explosive devise) in Zhari district this afternoon," he told The Associated Press.
He said there are a number of wounded as well but could not give further details.
