KUNDUZ, Afghanistan — Two American soldiers and more than 30 Afghans were killed on Thursday in the midst of heavy fighting around the northern provincial capital of Kunduz, officials and local residents said.

The soldiers who died brought the number of Americans killed in combat in Afghanistan this month to five, compared with only four known combat deaths for the previous nine months. Two American soldiers were also wounded in Thursday’s fighting, the military said.

The governor of Kunduz, Asadullah Omarkhel, said 30 civilians were killed and 46 were wounded in airstrikes, which he attributed to Afghan forces, and he also said four Afghan Special Forces soldiers were killed.
