A member of the US service dies in a suicide bombing



Another Romanian service member was also killed, a NATO-led coalition announced in a statement.

The attack does not penetrate the security perimeter, an official said.

Other details are not immediately available. The American's identity will be disclosed within 24 hours after the next relative is notified.

The death of the United States is the 16th U.S. service member to be killed in Afghanistan in 2019, and three other U.S. officials have been killed in recent weeks.
"Applauded by the terrorist attack in Afghanistan, in which a Romanian soldier lost his life. A second attack this week resulted in the murder of a Romanian citizen," Romanian President Klaus Johannis said on on Twitter Thursday. "Condolences to the victims' families."
The attack comes as the United States and the Taliban are close to a peace deal.
US Special Envoy for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, told Afghan TOLOnews on Monday that the US and the Taliban have reached an agreement "in principle" pending final approval by President Donald Trump.

Halilzad said based on a draft agreement, the US will withdraw troops from five bases in Afghanistan within 135 days as long as the Taliban meet the conditions set out in the agreement.

The withdrawal of US troops could be the beginning of the end of America's longest war, a nearly 18-year conflict triggered by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that cost billions of dollars to taxpayers and cost more than $ 2,300 life.
