US Soldier Killed 'in Action,' Taliban Attack Afghan Police Base

Pakistan joins US-led call for Afghan ceasefire, talks

Abdul Latif Rustayee, the director of a hospital in Qala-e-Naw, said the 10 wounded, including four security force members, were rushed to hospital.

"We agreed we will expand and ask more global partners to join w/ the start of negotiations", USA peace envoy for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, who attended the talks, said on Twitter on July 12.

It's unclear whether the death was related to a roadside bombing that the Taliban claimed Saturday, saying it had "blown apart" an armored US vehicle in an area of Wardak province along the Kandahar-Kabul Highway, about 50 miles south of the Afghan capital and some 25 miles west of a coalition base known as Camp Dahlke in Logar province.

Terrorists attacked a government compound in the provincial capital, Qala-e-Naw, from a position in a nearby hotel.

A record 3,804 Afghan civilians were killed past year due to stepped-up air attacks by US-led forces and more suicide bombings, the United Nations said in a February report.

Two U.S. service member were killed on June 26 when attacked by the Taliban under small arms fire in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan, the Pentagon said.

Separately, Afghanistan's Islamic State affiliate claimed Friday's suicide attack that killed 6 people. The United States does not use tanks in Afghanistan.

U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, has been holding peace talks with Taliban aimed at hammering out the details of a framework agreement reached in January.
