KABUL, April 25 (Xinhua) -- Two service members with the NATO- led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) lost their lives in two separate incidents in Afghanistan, the ISAF forces said on Wednesday.

"An International Security Assistance Force service member died following an improvised explosive device (IED) attack in southern Afghanistan today," said the ISAF press release issued here on Wednesday.

Another ISAF soldier died as a result of a non-battle related injury in restive eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, according to the ISAF release.

The press release did not provide details and the nationalities of the victims under ISAF policy.

Currently over 130,000 NATO-led ISAF troops with majority of them Americans have been serving in Afghanistan.

The latest casualties bring to 125 the number of ISAF troops killed in Afghanistan so far this year.
