One soldier of the U.S.-led Coalition forces and two Afghan locals were killed Saturday in southern Afghanistan as their vehicle struck a bomb, the U.S. military said.

A statement of the Coalition forces said the incident is under investigation, giving no details such as the nationality of slain service member.

The multi-national force under U.S. command has suffered over 220 deaths in Afghanistan so far this year, of whom over 120 are American soldiers, as the Taliban-led militants are increasing attacks on Afghan and foreign troops in the war-torn central Asiannation.

A Coalition soldier was killed Friday afternoon in a bomb attack in western Afghanistan.

Earlier the NATO-led force in Afghanistan said Saturday it shot dead a civilian who failed to stop after warning shots were fired to signal him to stop approaching the NATO convoy in southern Helmand province.

Around 71,000 international troops comprising the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and the U.S.-led Coalition forces are deployed across Afghanistan for fighting militants.
