By Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan >> The U.S. military is confirming the death of a U.S. service member in eastern Afghanistan, bringing the number of American troops dead in Afghanistan in the long-running conflict to 2,000.

The international coalition in Afghanistan said one of its service members was killed in a suspected insider attack by Afghan forces today. A U.S. official said that the dead service member was American. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the nationality of the dead had not yet been formally announced.

The number of American dead reflects an Associated Press count of those members of the armed services killed inside Afghanistan since the U.S.-led invasion on Oct. 7, 2001.
