NATO Soldiers Killed In Afghanistan


NATO says two of its service members have been killed in separate attacks in Afghanistan.

In a statement, the coalition said one soldier died on December 23 after coming under direct fire by enemy forces in eastern Afghanistan.

Another soldier was killed in an attack in the country's south.

NATO did not provide any further details, including the nationality of the soldiers.

The incidents bring to nine the number of coalition deaths so far this month.

Last week, six American soldiers died when their helicopter went down during a mission in the southern province of Zabul.
