NATO Soldier, 2 Afghans Killed In Separate Attacks

A NATO soldier and two Afghans have been killed in two separate attacks in eastern Afghanistan.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force said one of its soldiers was killed in "a direct fire attack in eastern Afghanistan" on July 16.

NATO has not provided any other details about the attack or the nationality of the soldier.

Also on July 16, Nangarhar Province's police spokesman, Hazrat Hussain, said an Afghan police officer and an intelligence agent were killed after an explosive-rigged bicycle was remotely detonated on the outskirts of the provincial capital, Jalalabad.

But provincial government spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdulzai said the attack killed two civilians.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
