At least 18 American troops have been killed in Afghanistan in the past week, along with eight coalition troops from the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and France, according to CNN records.

Meanwhile, two service members were wounded in a suicide attack Friday on a NATO convoy in Zabul province - also in southern Afghanistan, said Jhalam Jelali, the provincial police chief.
