3 U.S. Soldiers Wounded in Kabul Attack (AP)

KABUL, Afghanistan - Suspected Taliban rebels on Sunday killed a candidate running in next month's legislative elections, while an attack on a U.S. military convoy wounded three American troops, authorities said.

Militants attacked the U.S. service members as they were patrolling Friday about 25 miles east of Kabul, a U.S. military statement said. An attack helicopter rushed to the site, but the rebels had fled.

The wounded were in stable condition after being evacuated to Bagram, the main U.S. base in
Afghanistan, about an hour drive north of Kabul, the statement said.

Attacks on the U.S. military so close to Kabul are rare and Friday's assault occurred less than a week after a roadside bomb in the capital blew up near a convoy of U.S. Embassy vehicles, wounding two American staff members.
