A soldier of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was killed in southern Afghanistan on Sunday, an ISAF statement said.
The soldier was killed while performing convoy escort duties, the statement said.
It did not mention in which province the solider was killed.
In accordance with ISAF policy, ISAF does not release a casualty's nationality prior to the relevant national authority doing so.
About 37,000 ISAF soldiers are being deployed in Afghanistan to fight militants and keep security.
Due to rising Taliban violence, over 3,900 persons have been killed in Afghanistan this year.
