A U.S. official said all 13 NATO service members killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan were American troops.

A suicide bomber drove a van loaded with explosives into a coalition convoy in Kabul, the Afghan capital.

The explosion also killed four Afghans, including a policeman.

The Taliban promptly claimed responsibility for the attack. The explosion was one of three deadly incidents of the day across Afghanistan.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
