US soldier killed in suicide bombing in Kabul



Another member of the Romanian military service was also killed, the NATO-led coalition said in a statement.

The attack had not penetrated into the security area, the official said.

Further details are not available immediately. The identity of the American will be announced 24 hours after the next of kin has been informed.

The death of the US is the 16th US military member killed in Afghanistan in 2019, and three more American soldiers were killed in Afghanistan last week.
"Terrified by the terrorist attack in Afghanistan that killed a Romanian soldier, the second attack this week resulted in the murder of a Romanian citizen," said Romanian President Klaus Iohannis on Twitter Thursday. "Condolences to the families of the victims."
The attack comes when the US and the Taliban are close to a peace agreement.
US Special Representative for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, told TOLOnews from Afghanistan on Monday that the US and the Taliban had "in principle" reached an agreement that had not yet been finally approved by President Donald Trump.

The US will withdraw troops from five bases throughout Afghanistan within 135 days, as long as the Taliban fulfill the conditions set out in the agreement.

The withdrawal of US troops could mark the beginning of the end of the longest American war, a nearly 18-year conflict triggered by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, which cost billions in taxpayer money and cost more than 2,300 American lives.
