Blasts kill 2 NATO soldiers in Afghanistan


13:19, September 26, 2011

KABUL, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Two soldiers of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were killed in two separate blasts in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday.

"An International Security Assistance Force service member died following an improvised explosive device (IED) attack in eastern Afghanistan today," ISAF said in a statement.

In a separate incident, one International Security Assistance Force service member died following an IED attack, also in eastern Afghanistan today, the statement added.

However, it did not identify the nationalities of the victims, saying it is ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities.

More than 400 foreign soldiers, most of them Americans, have been killed in Afghanistan so far this year.

Taliban militants have been largely relying on suicide and roadside bombs to fight Afghan and NATO-led troops.
