Six NATO soldiers killed in Afghanistan

KABUL (AFP) – Six NATO soldiers including three French service personnel have died over the last 24 hours in Afghanistan, NATO and the French authorities announced on Sunday.

"In several separate incidents, three International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service members died as a result of enemy activity in southern Afghanistan and three ISAF service members died from a non-combat related incident in eastern Afghanistan in the last 24 hours," ISAF said in a statement.

In the first incident on Saturday, an American soldier died of wounds sustained when an improvised-explosive device (IED) detonated in southern Afghanistan, the force said.

A second US trooper died Saturday, also in the south, as a result of wounds suffered during an insurgent attack, the statement said.
