Afghan bomb kills six American soldiers

This New York Times article offers details on a suicide bomb attack, delivered by a van packed with explosives, whose explosion was reported to be audible as far as eight miles away.  Currently six Americans are reported dead, but other troops with injuries are not expected to be life threatening.  The article also reports:

American fatalities in Afghanistan have risen steadily for five years, with 479 American soldiers killed so far in 2010, according to icasualties.org, an independent Web site that compiles battlefield data. That is more than three times the 155 American casualties in 2008.
