Three soldiers from the NATO-led international coalition (ISAF) in Afghanistan have been killed in two separate incidents.

A coalition statement said that two soldiers were killed on July 22 by a roadside bomb in eastern Afghanistan and one was killed on the same day during a firefight with insurgents, also in the eastern part of the country.

The statement did not identify the slain service personnel or give their nationalities.

Elsewhere, six Afghan workers at a NATO base in Wardak Province were abducted on the night of July 21 by Taliban militants and five of them were found dead early the next morning, a local government official said.

The sixth worker managed to escape.

The Taliban have not commented on the incident.
