Four NATO service members — including one American — were killed in action Monday, the deadliest day for the international force in more than two weeks.

Combat deaths are still running at higher levels than in recent years even through the traditional winter fighting lull and despite talk of peace overtures to the Taliban and their allies.

The American service member, who was not identified, died in a roadside bombing in southern Afghanistan, the NATO command announced.

Two other soldiers, whose nationalities were not released, were killed in a firefight in the south, the main theater of the war.
