Blast kills 3 Nato troops in Afghanistan

Three troops from the Nato-led International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) were killed by a roadside bomb in eastern Afghanistan yesterday, officials said.
Isaf did not say which country the dead troops were from or give further details of the incident, in line with policy.
There are around 140,000 international troops in Afghanistan fighting a Taliban-led insurgency, 100,000 of them from the United States.
The latest incident takes to 542 the number of coalition troops killed in Afghanistan this year, according to an AFP tally based on that kept by independent website iCasualties.org.
