Afghan driver working for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was killed when the truck he drove hit a roadside mine Thursday in eastern Afghan province of Kunar, said an ISAF statement released here on Friday.

"The accident occurred at around 11 a.m. (0630 GMT) when the fuel truck the victim was driving exploded after it struck what is believed to have been an improvised explosive device (IED)," the statement said.

The truck was part of a convoy that was conducting a resupply mission in Manogai district of Kunar, it said.

No ISAF soldiers were wounded or killed in the attack, it further added.

More than 8,000 people had been killed in violent incidents in Afghanistan in 2007 while over 300 have lost their lives in conflicts and militancy so far this year in the war-battered country.
