The U.S. command confirmed their nationalities but did not specify where they died.In London, the British Defense Ministry said one of its soldiers was killed by in an explosion in Helmand province.



NATO said a fifth soldier was killed in eastern Afghanistan, but did not give the nationality.

June is shaping up to be one of the deadliest months for U.S. troops in the nearly 9-year-old Afghan war, as insurgents have stepped up attacks in response to a NATO push into Taliban strongholds in the south. The deadliest month for U.S. troops in Afghanistan was October 2009, when 59 Americans died.
