Two members of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were killed today in separate bomb explosions in southern Afghanistan.

A statement by NATO did not reveal the nationalities of the soldiers, nor did it say where exactly in the southern region the attacks took place.

The British Defense Ministry, meanwhile, said in a statement posted on its website that a British soldier was killed near Sangin district in Helmand Province.

It was not immediately clear if that death was one of those announced by ISAF.
