"Three U.S. service members and one contractor were killed, and three U.S. service members were wounded by an improvised explosive device April 8 near Bagram Air Base", the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said in a statement. Defense Department officials told The Wall Street Journal that the explosion was the result of a Taliban attack on a convoy carrying the American service members.

An Afghan military convoy drives past the site of a auto bomb attack where U.S soldiers were killed near Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, April 9, 2019.

The wounded American troops were evacuated and are receiving medical care, officials said Monday.

World's first 5G phone released in South Korea
SK Telecom, KT, and LG Uplus all announced their first subscribers, who all bought the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. South Korea comes next, with its companies holding 2,051 patents, while USA firms have 1,368 together.

Other reports suggested that it was a suicide bombing claimed by the Taliban, with an attacker driving an explosive-laden vehicle into a USA military convoy.

There are about 14,000 USA forces in Afghanistan, supporting embattled Afghan forces as they struggle on two fronts - facing a resurgent Taliban who now hold sway over nearly half the country and also the Islamic State affiliate, which has sought to expand its footprint in Afghanistan even as its self-proclaimed "caliphate" has crumbled in Syria and Iraq.

A USA contractor working alongside troops in Afghanistan has been found alive after a blast that killed three American service members and wounded three others.

The war has taken a much larger toll on Afghan security forces and civilians.

However, the Afghan political leadership has constantly urged upon the group to denounce violence, endorse Afghan Constitution and engage in direct talks with the government, but the Taliban has been saying that the group has refused to talk to the Afghan government.

The bombing was the deadliest incident for Americans in Afghanistan since November, when a roadside bomb attack in the country's eastern Ghazni province led to the deaths of four US servicemembers.

Five missiles launched against Israel from Gaza Strip
In the evening, the ministry said another 17-year-old died hours after being shot in the chest in a different protest location. On Monday, a rocket fired from Gaza struck a house north of the Israeli commercial capital Tel Aviv, wounding seven people.

The US now has some 14,000 troops in Afghanistan - down from a peak of around 100,000 - a lot of them deployed to train and advise Afghan counterparts. But the Taliban say they will not recognize any government official attending the gathering as a representative of the Kabul government, only as an individual Afghan participant.
