10 NATO troops killed; 7 American; 30,000 more being deployed to Afghanistan

KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, AFGHANISTAN — Ten NATO troops were killed Monday in bombings and shootings in eastern and southern Afghanistan, military officials said, in the deadliest day for the U.S.-led international force this year.

Also on Monday, two people, including an American civilian contractor, were killed when three suicide bombers launched a coordinated attack at a police training center in Kandahar city, officials said.

The attacks underscored the dangers U.S. forces face as 30,000 additional troops are being deployed to Afghanistan to fight a resurgent Taliban movement.
