KABUL, Afghanistan — Four international troops were killed by a bomb early Sunday in southern Afghanistan, officials said, the latest deaths in the 12-year war.

Javid Faisal, a spokesman for the governor of southern Kandahar province, said the deaths occurred when a NATO patrol was on foot as part of a joint operation with the Afghan army and a bomb detonated in the Zhari district about 3 a.m. NATO didn't release the nationalities in line with its policy, but Faisal said they were Americans.

The Taliban claimed responsibility.
