Afghan Bomb Kills Two NATO Soldiers

In-depth Report:

KABUL — A bomb attack killed two NATO soldiers in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday, the military said.

The deaths took to 189 the number of international forces killed in Afghanistan this year so far. Two NATO soldiers, one of them British, were killed in separate attacks on Sunday.

In keeping with policy, the NATO-run International Security Assistance Force did not disclose the nationality of the latest fatalities.
