American service members, 1 US contractor killed in roadside bombing in Afghanistan

The militants launched their assault ahead of a widely expected spring offensive

Three US service members and one contractor have been killed by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on Twitter, saying it was the result of a suicide bombing on a US armored vehicle.

Bagram Airfield, America´s largest air base in Afghanistan, is located about 50 kilometres (30 miles) north of Kabul.

Prior to Monday's attack, there had been a total of four American troops killed in Afghanistan in 2019: Sgt. Cameron Meddock, Staff Sgt. Joshua Z. Beale, Spc. It added that in accordance with U.S. Department of Defense policy, the names of service members killed in action were being withheld until after the notification of next of kin. One of the chief conditions of USA negotiators is that the Taliban cease all attacks on American personnel and end all support for terrorism.

Trump touts rising US border ‘wall,’ proposes economic penalty on Mexico
Trump, during Friday's roundtable on the border, called his one-year warning on a southern USA border closure "fake news". US Attorney General William Barr said the president's emergency declaration was legal.

"The area is cordoned off by the coalition forces".

He said that a timeline for the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan should be finalized and then the Taliban and the Afghan government should enter into face-to-face talks. US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad met with President Ashraf Ghani and other Afghan leaders in Kabul in recent days, seeking to build support for nascent discussions with Taliban representatives in Doha, Qatar. The insurgents dismiss the Afghan government as a US puppet.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told lawmakers in March that reducing violent extremism by the Taliban and the Islamic State would spur "real negotiations about what a political resolution would look like in Afghanistan, always being mindful of the risk".
