Two NATO soldiers killed in Afghanistan

KABUL: Two NATO soldiers were killed and three others wounded in a battle with Taliban militants in eastern Afghanistan, the military force said Friday.

"Two service members were killed and three others were wounded during a firefight with insurgent forces," a statement from the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force said.

The troops were killed in eastern Kunar province late Thursday when their joint Afghan army and ISAF patrol was ambushed with small-arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades, the statement said.

The patrol repelled the insurgent attack and called in air support, the statement added.
