    Eight US soldiers have been killed in bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan, say Nato-led forces.

    An Afghan civilian was also killed by what were called "multiple complex IED attacks" - or improvised bombs.

    The deaths make October the deadliest month for American forces in the eight-year war in Afghanistan.

    On Monday 11 soldiers were among 14 Americans killed in multiple air crashes. In total this month 55 US troops are said to have died.

    Like many deaths in Afghanistan, Tuesday's bloodshed was blamed on the improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that pose the biggest threat to foreign forces operating in the country.

    "Additionally, several service members were wounded in these incidents and were transported to a regional medical facility for treatment," said a statement from the International Security Assistance Force (Isaf).

    The sharp increase in the US death toll in Afghanistan comes amid a review of policy in Afghanistan by US President Barack Obama.

    He is under pressure to reinforce the US military presence by tens of thousands of US troops - but many Americans are unlikely to support such a course in light of October's succession of deadly incidents, says the BBC's Andrew North, in Afghanistan.
