A roadside bomb attack in eastern Afghanistan has killed four US soldiers, Nato said.
AFP quoted spokesman James Judge as saying that a home-made bomb, one of the main weapons of the Taliban, was used in the attack.
The attack comes a day after seven US soldiers were killed in two bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan.
The deaths add to the rising trend of casualties for Nato's International Security Assistance Force (Isaf).
June and July were the worst months for foreign troop deaths since the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001.
Nearly 50 Americans have died in August alone. More than 350 Nato soldiers have been killed this year.

Can't really blame them,they don't want to get chopped after Obama surrenders next summer.
I can imagine Obama’s senior year of college (I have to imagine it, since it’s a secret like everything else in his shadowy past): “let’s date until graduation, and then I’m dumping you. So, do you want a movie tonight or just dinner?” Even a liberal would know that the Obama line would be a flop in the dating world; why do they think it’s any better in diplomacy?
Man, we need to get so much tougher over there. These politically correct wars are costing too many lives. These scum who hide among the people and do not wear uniforms do not deserve anything other than the utmost violence. And if the people continue to hide them and refuse to identify them, then too bad. Just bring in the big bombs and teach these savages some respect the only way they will ever learn. Either fight to win or get to hell out. No more soldier’s lives lost in a futile “hearts and minds” strategy.
Indeed - every day there is another report of casualties. What the heck are we doing there other than providing targets for bombers?
We’ve got the weapons and technology to win this war tomorrow , yet we continue to send our young men to die like these brave men did . The war will never be won on the streets and in the villages with conventional weapons like guns and bayonets . Ancient technology .
