NATO has “abandoned an Afghan outpost days after it was stormed by militants who killed nine US soldiers.” The “predawn assault on the still-unfinished camp left nine US soldiers dead and was the worst single toll for US forces in Afghanistan since 2005.”

The setback comes as the insurgency in Afghanistan gains “dangerous momentum,” killing “more U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan in June than in Iraq for the second straight month.”
