COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio National Guard confirms all three of its soldiers killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan have been brought back to the United States.

Public Information Specialist Bill Pierce said Monday that the remains of 36-year-old Capt. Nicholas Rozanski of Dublin,
45-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Rieck of Columbus and 44-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Hannon of Grove City arrived
Saturday at Delaware's Dover Air Force Base.

Pierce said he could not provide details about when their remains would be returned to Ohio.

The soldiers were killed in an attack by a suicide bomber Wednesday in Maimanah, the capital of Faryab province. At least 13 people died. Four more people from the Ohio unit were wounded.
