WASHINGTON — Defense officials said four U.S. troops were killed on Tuesday at or near Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.

Officials say the four were killed by indirect fire, likely a mortar or rocket, but they did not offer other details.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to provide details on the deaths.
