troops make up about 100,000 of the 120,000-strong foreign military contingent in Afghanistan, most in the south and east where the Taliban is most deeply entrenched

No other details about the attacks on the U.S. troops were given by NATO and the identities of those killed were not immediately released.

A total of 55 foreign troops have been killed in Afghanistan this month, including 35 Americans, according to a count by The Associated Press. July was the deadliest month for U.S. forces in Afghanistan since the 2001 invasion, with 66 killed.

Afghanistan: The Road Ahead

U.S. troops make up about 100,000 of the 120,000-strong foreign military contingent in Afghanistan, most in the south and east where the Taliban is most deeply entrenched.

Meanwhile, a police official said three Afghan policemen and two civilians were killed and 15 civilians wounded in Thursday evening’s bombing in Kunduz province’s Archi town. The blast went off as residents shopped for food in anticipation of the breaking of the dawn-to-dusk fast observed during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but deputy provincial police chief Abdul Rahman Aqtash said civilians appeared to be the target.

«This was a cruel act of the enemy. There was nothing to link these people to the coalition or to politics,» Aqtash said.

Kunduz, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) north of the Afghan capital, Kabul, has not traditionally been a Taliban stronghold. However, insurgents have steadily built their presence there since 2007, mostly among ethnic Pashtuns who are a minority in the area. Attacks on a key coalition supply line running south from Tajikistan are a constant menace, along with ambushes of German forces who help provide security.

In establishing a northern foothold, Afghan authorities believe the Taliban use veterans from southern battlefields to help organize local groups, sometimes with help from the al Qaeda-linked Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which provides recruits from among the Uzbek minority.

«The situation is very bad and dangerous in Kunduz but unfortunately the security officials keep saying things are all right,» Mabubullah Mabub, chairman of the Kunduz provincial council, told AP Thursday. «Over the last two years, the situation has been getting worse.»

Farther east in Badakhshan province, Afghan army commandos aided by U.S. special forces discovered a major weapons cache in the remote village of Nawci on Wednesday, NATO reported. It said weapons found included 78 rockets with launchers, 47 mortar rounds, more than 9,000 rounds of ammunition, and 24 rocket-propelled grenades. All were destroyed.

The town is believed to be a safe haven for Taliban fighters and drug smugglers, as well as a conduit for foreign fighters arriving from neighboring Pakistan, NATO said.

Meanwhile, Afghan, French and U.S. troops wrapped up a weeklong offensive against insurgents in the Uzbeen valley northeast of Kabul, NATO said. Backed by air power, 서울출장안마 the combined force killed about 40 Taliban fighters and captured several key Taliban operatives, it said.

Another three insurgents were killed and three detained in eastern Paktiya province by Afghan and coalition forces pursuing a Taliban sub-commander — part of an expanding number of operations targeting the insurgents’ leadership.

While the Taliban sub-commander was not captured, the coalition claimed to have nabbed two key operatives with the Haqqani network, an Islamist militant group with deep links to al Qaeda. NATO also said its forces in Kunduz were chasing a militant affiliated with a number of groups including al Qaeda, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and the Taliban.

NATO said the militant was recently forced to leave a safe haven in Pakistan and moved across the border accompanied by several al Qaeda members.

Afghanistan routinely complains that Pakistan hasn’t done enough to drive out extremists and President Hamid Karzai on Thursday told a visiting U.S. Congressional delegation the fight against terrorism cannot succeed as long as the Taliban and their allies maintain sanctuaries in Pakistan.

A statement by Karzai’s office said the Afghan leader told the U.S. delegation that significant progress had been made in rebuilding the country after decades of war. But he said the campaign against the Taliban and al Qaeda had faltered because of ongoing civilian casualties during NATO military operations and a lack of focus on «destroying the terrorists’ refuge» across the border.

Karzai also said President Barack Obama’s announcement that he would begin withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan in July 2011 has given «the enemy a morale boost» because they believe they can simply hold out until the Americans leave.

An animated Lynch told CBS News she now expects to have trouble sleeping after receiving the honor

Funny woman Jane Lynch has earned a spot among some of Hollywood’s brightest stars.

진주출장안마-후불제-【Ø7Øx7575xØØ77】→【출장검색】 "진주출장아가씨 진주콜걸출장안마후기 『후불만남】진주콜걸출장마사지 진주출장샵강추 진주모텔출장3진주출장맛사지후기On Wednesday, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce awarded Lynch the 2,505th star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

An animated Lynch told CBS News she now expects to have trouble sleeping after receiving the honor.

«I am going to wake up in the middle of the night and say, ‘Ahh, I am a star!'» she said.

Lynch is perhaps best known for her ongoing role as the track suit-wearing cheerleading coach on the hit television show «Glee.»

She and her fellow cast members are currently shooting an episode that involves the death of «Glee» character Finn Hudson. The role was played by actor Corey Monteith, who died in July from a mixture of heroin and alcohol, according to the British Columbia coroner’s office.

«Work is the best thing for grief,» said Lynch. «So we are working on this episode right now, the tribute to our quarterback, our Corey, who was not only quarterback of the football team, but of the Glee Club and I think it does him great justice.»

During the ceremony, Lynch posed alongside her new star —and even laid down next to it — as crowds of fans and 영월출장안마 photographers snapped her photo.

She says the Hollywood honor is one she has dreamed of since moving to Los Angeles more than 20 years ago.

«In a way — this is going to sound snooty of me — I was like, ‘Of course,’ but in another way, it blows my mind,» Lynch said.
