Two U.S. Soldiers Killed In Afghan Blast

18 August 2005 (RFE/RL) -- The U.S. military says two U.S. soldiers were killed and two others wounded when a roadside bomb blew up their armored vehicle in Afghanistan's southern province of Kandahar.

A statement said the vehicle was part of a convoy supporting a road-construction project. It did not say when the attack happened.

Currently, there are more than 20,000 U.S.-led troops hunting the remnants of the Taliban and their allies from al-Qaeda network, mainly in south and southeastern regions of the country.
