U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan

A member of the USA military has been killed in Afghanistan on Saturday becoming the second American service member to die in the country this month.

The NATO-led Resolute Support mission released no details of the incident and held back the service member's name until relatives could be notified. The president is yet to visit military members in Afghanistan or Iraq.

The identity of the soldier killed was not revealed, pending notification of next of kin.

The Pentagon says there are about 14,000 USA service members in Afghanistan. Brent Taylor of the Army National Guard was killed during an insider attack in Kabul that also injured another USA servicemember.

More than 2,400 USA forces have died in the 17-year-old war.

Taylor, a father of seven, was on his fourth deployment and a second tour of Afghanistan.

Apple is CUTTING the price of its 'budget' iPhone XR in Japan
To be blunt, Apple hasn't done a decent job of conveying to the public what the iPhone XR is and what it brings to the table. The iPhone XR is the best iPhone for the price, delivering most of the advantages of the iPhone XS for hundreds less.

In recent months there have been a series of "insider attacks" targeting worldwide forces, in which members of Afghan security forces have turned their weapons on those serving alongside them.

Insider attacks have been a growing problem for the U.S.in Afghanistan. Though the US and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission in Afghanistan formally concluded in 2014, American troops remain deployed there, and are tasked with training and supporting the Afghan National Security Forces, which have been struggling to push back a resurgent Taliban.

A Czech soldier was killed four days later in an insider attack in Herat Province.

The death brings the USA combat death toll this year in Afghanistan to eight, according to Reuters.
