BBC News - July is deadliest month of Afghanistan war for US

American forces have experienced their deadliest month in the nine-year-old Afghan war, with 63 US service members killed in July.

June's record of 60 was surpassed after it was confirmed three soldiers killed in the south of the country on Thursday were Americans.

Meanwhile, hundreds of UK and Afghan troops launched a major offensive against the Taliban in Helmand.

Casualties have risen as the war escalates against a resurgent Taliban.

US President Barack Obama ordered 30,000 reinforcements to Afghanistan last December.
