Nato says a member of its international force in Afghanistan has died in an insurgent attack.

A coalition statement said the incident took place in southern Afghanistan but gave no other details, nor the nationality of the casualty.

The attack comes a day after an Afghan soldier opened fire on French troops during a training exercise, killing four of them and prompting France to suspend its training programmes.
