A U.S. serviceman was killed in Helmand province in Afghanistan. The Pentagon reported he was killed “while conducting a train advise and assist mission with their Afghan special operations counterparts.”
The Taliban controls several districts in Helmand and has been staging a resurgence in Afghanistan over the course of 2015.
Two suicide bombings hit the capital Kabul on Monday. One person was killed and many others wounded. Residents of Kabul fear the government is unable to protect them.
“The attacks are merciless. We are the most affected by these attacks. Our children die and no one is here to ask about them or us," Massoud, a Kabul resident, told Qatari owned outlet Al Jazeera.
"It's violence everywhere and this is the kind of environment our children are growing up in. Either the Taliban should take over completely or the government has to prevent these attacks and create a better environment for us."
