Nato trio killed in Afghanistan

Three Nato service members have been killed in separate incidents in Afghanistan

Three Nato service members have been killed in separate incidents in Afghanistan.

The international coalition said two service members died from a bomb and an insurgent attack in the south, while the third was killed in an insurgent attack in the east.

Nato did not provide further details or the nationalities of the dead. The coalition typically waits for national authorities to make such announcements.

The latest deaths make 15 international service members killed so far this month. So far this year, 286 international troopers have been killed in Afghanistan.
