KABUL, Afghanistan – The suicide attack on U.S. troops that killed six near Afghanistan's Bagram airport was the deadliest assault on international forces since August. Two U.S. troops and an Afghan were also wounded when the bomber rammed an explosives-laden motorcycle into a joint NATO-Afghan patrol on Monday.

The soldiers were targeted as they moved through a village near Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. military facility in Afghanistan, NATO and Afghan officials said. The Taliban claimed responsibility.
