Bomb kills 4 U.S. troops in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) -- A U.S. Humvee struck a roadside bomb in Afghanistan's Uruzgan province Monday, killing four U.S. service members, the U.S. military said.

The names of the troops are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

They were on patrol with Afghan National Army forces at the time, the military said, and the patrol came under attack by small arms and rocket-propelled grenade fire shortly after the explosion.
