Bomb kills 2 US troops; NATO losses at 24 for June

KABUL, Afghanistan — Two more NATO troops were killed in Afghanistan on Tuesday, the military said, extending a spike of bloodshed into a second day and pushing the death toll for foreign forces in the country to 24 in little more than a week.
The latest deaths, including at least two Americans, came as insurgents step up bombings and other attacks ahead of a major NATO operation in the Taliban stronghold of Kandahar that Washington hopes will turn the tide of the nearly 9-year-old war.
