The Taliban followed up two deadly attacks in Kabul earlier last week with a series of bombings, assaults, and suicide attacks in the capital and four provinces over the weekend. Twelve de-mining personnel, 11 Afghan soldiers and police, two Coalition troops, and a Supreme Court official are among those killed.
Officials said Sunday that U.S. Army Spc. Wyatt J. Martin of Mesa, Arizona, and Sgt. 1st Class Ramon S. Morris of New York, New York, died Friday in Parwan Province, Afghanistan. The vehicle the men were in was attacked with an improvised explosive device.
