Blast kills NATO soldier in Afghanistan


KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — NATO says a blast in southern Afghanistan has killed one of its service members.

A statement from the U.S.-led coalition said the soldier died following an improvised explosive device attack on Saturday.

The coalition did not give further details on where the incident occurred or the nationality of the service member killed in the attack.

Afghan insurgents have increased attacks in recent months, intensifying a campaign to regain territory as foreign forces draw down ahead of a full withdrawal at the end of 2014.

Saturday's death brings to five the number of coalition troops who have died in Afghanistan so far this month.
