American forces have experienced their deadliest month in the nine-year-old Afghan war, with 66 US service members killed in July.
The death toll crept up again on Friday as three more American soldiers died – two from a roadside bomb – in the south of the country, Nato confirmed.
The previous most deadly month for the US was June this year, when 60 died.
Meanwhile, hundreds of UK and Afghan troops have launched a major offensive against the Taliban in Helmand.
