Three US service members and a contractor have been killed in Afghanistan by an explosive device, the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said in a statement.
No group has taken responsibility for the attack either. Also, activists in Sudan say attempts by security forces to quash a protest set off widespread violence, killing at least six people since Saturday.

A statement from the military said the wounded service members have been evacuated and are receiving medical care.
