KABUL, Afghanistan – Insurgents shot down a NATO helicopter and killed four American troops in on Wednesday, the military said, in the latest bloodshed ahead of a major operation in the militants' heartland.
The violence came as Afghanistan's ousted intelligence chief warned in an interview with The Associated Press that Afghan President Hamid Karzai's strategy of with the Taliban was dangerously flawed.
The deaths, and that of a British soldier killed by an improvised bomb in a separate attack Wednesday, take NATO's toll to 29 deaths in nine days, according to an AP count. The United States, whose some 94,000 troops vastly outnumber the rest of the allies' contributions in Afghanistan, has lost 17 since Sunday.
