U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan

One U.S. soldier was killed and two wounded during a joint U.S.-Afghan Special Operations mission in Marjah, Afghanistan, Tuesday, with fighting still continuing, the Pentagon announced.

A U.S. official told CNN that a quick reaction force has been launched in an effort to rescue those forces on the ground in Marjah. The official could not say where the force was launched from or how many people were involved.

The service member who was killed came under fire as part of a train-and-assist mission in Marjah, located in Helmand Province, Pentagon Spokesman Peter Cook said.
