KABUL (AP) -- Ten Afghan security force members have been killed in insurgent attacks over the past two days.

The U.S. military says a roadside bomb killed three Afghan army commandos on patrol in an eastern province yesterday. Four other soldiers were wounded.

Afghan authorities report a second roadside bombing killed a policeman in another eastern province.

In the west, Afghan officials are reporting three deadly clashes. Two battles between police and militants yesterday each killed three Taliban and one police officer. And in an incident today, police say militants attacked a police convoy, killing four officers and wounding a top government official.

Meanwhile, Afghan state TV is reporting that the country's Supreme Court has ruled that President Hamid Karzai should remain in office until a new leader is chosen in a late summer election. The country's constitution says his term expires May 21.
