    The Taliban are active in southern and eastern regions and have vowed to drive out foreign troops from Afghanistan and topple the central government.
     
    On July 4, a roadside bomb killed six soldiers with the Nato-led force and their Afghan interpreter in southern Afghanistan.
     
    Those deaths took to 105 the number of foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan this year, most of them in combat.
