A huge roadside bomb killed five US troops in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, officials said, in the deadliest attack on NATO-led forces this year.

“Five American soldiers were killed at about noon when their armoured vehicle hit a powerful roadside mine in Maiwand district,” General Abdul Razeq, Kandahar province’s police chief, told AFP.

The attack came four days after three British soldiers were killed in a similar blast in the neighbouring province of Helmand.
