October new deadliest month for US in Afghanistan

U.S. forces say eight American troops have been killed in multiple bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan. The deaths make October the deadliest month of the war for American troops since the start of the war in 2001.
The U.S. military says the eight deaths Tuesday occurred in "multiple, complex" bomb attacks in the south. One Afghan civilian was also killed, and several other troops were wounded and taken to a nearby medical facility.
The latest deaths bring to 55 the total number of American troops killed in Afghanistan. Fighting previously spiked around the presidential vote in August, when 51 U.S. soldiers died.
