NATO hits Tripoli after Hague meets rebels

There are around 130,000 US-led international troops in Afghanistan fighting a Taliban-led insurgency.



Kabul: Three foreign troops were killed in
Afghanistan on Sunday, including two who died when their
helicopter crashed in the east, the NATO-led International
Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said.

ISAF added that the cause of the crash was being
investigated but there were no signs of enemy fire in the area
at the time.

In line with policy, ISAF did not give further details
of the incident or reveal which country the dead troops came
from.

Meanwhile in southern Afghanistan, another troop was
killed "following an insurgent attack", ISAF said.

The deaths in the south and east, which feature some
of the worst battlegrounds in the Afghan war, came as US
Defence Secretary Robert Gates visited Afghanistan for
farewell visits to troops.

There are around 130,000 US-led international troops
in Afghanistan fighting a Taliban-led insurgency which has
lasted for nearly 10 years since a 2001 invasion brought down
their Islamist regime in Kabul.
