KABUL – A soldier from the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was killed and another was wounded on Wednesday in a mine blast in southern Afghanistan, a military statement said.
Taliban suicide attacks and roadside bombs have been a major problem for Afghanistan and its Western backers in the last few years, killing or injuring hundreds of people.
A suicide bomber on foot was killed on Thursday when the device he was carrying detonated before he could reach his target in the southern province of Zabul, a provincial official said. One shopkeeper was wounded in the blast.
On Monday two coalition soldiers died when their vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb in the east.
In accordance with policy, ISAF does not release the nationality of casualties.
