Bomb blasts killed four US Marines in southern Afghanistan, where thousands of American troops have deployed in recent weeks as part of an offensive in the country's dangerous drug-producing region, an official said Sunday. The four Marines died Saturday in Helmand province, where about 4,000 troops this month launched the largest Marine operation in Afghanistan since 2001. US forces have met little resistance but face the danger of roadside bombs everywhere they travel. On Friday, a fifth US service member wounded in June died of wounds in the US, according to Lt. Cmdr. Christine Sidenstricker, who had also confirmed the deaths of the four Marines. The four were initially identified as Army soldiers.
