KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - A U.S. defense official says three NATO troops killed today in southern Afghanistan were Americans.

The official in Washington says a roadside bomb killed the three U.S. troops and a military dog.

NATO had announced the deaths without providing any details.

Foreign forces have largely shifted to a training and advisory role in Afghanistan but still face danger from insurgents who are fighting to derail the Western-backed government.
