WASHINGTON - October has been the deadliest month for U.S.
troops in Afghanistan since the start of the war in 2001, Pentagon
officials said on Tuesday.

The death of eight troops in bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan on
Tuesday pushed the October death toll to 53, topping the previous high
of 51 deaths in August, officials said.
