Nato troops die in Afghan attack

At least 21 foreign troops have reportedly been killed in Afghanistan this year.


     

    Most of the attacks in the country are blamed on a resurgent Taliban.
     
    US-led forces had driven out the group from Kabul in 2001, but the Taliban has reportedly regrouped since then, launching attacks on the current Afghan government and forces supporting it.
