Two U.S. Marines Killed in Afghanistan

(Kabul, Afghanistan-AP) -- The U.S. military says two Marines have been killed and another was wounded in Afghanistan.

A spokeswoman says they were attacked last night in an eastern province on the border with Pakistan. She gave no other details.

The province is one of several across the south and east of Afghanistan plagued by Taliban-led insurgents. The U.S. military says it has killed more than 80 militants in the past month.
