WASHINGTON - A U.S. official says two more American troops have been killed in Afghanistan, the latest in a series of attacks following protests over the burning of the Quran.

The official said details of the killings Thursday in Southern Afghanistan are still unclear but officials believe there were three attackers, two of whom were subsequently killed. He said the third may be in custody.

Six Americans have been killed following the burning of Qurans and other Islamic texts that had been dumped in a garbage pit at Bagram Air Field near Kabul.
