Three Nato-led Soldiers Killed in Afghanistan
March 25, 2012
At least three Nato forces were killed in Afghanistan on Saturday, Isaf said.
An Isaf statement said that one of the soldiers died in a bomb blast in southern Afghanistan, another one in an insurgent attack in the west, and the third one as a result of a non-battle related injury in the east.
Isaf did not provide more details about the exact location of the incident and nationality of the soldiers, saying it was up to individual countries the soldiers were representing to confirm details.
The death brings the number of foreign troops who have died this year in Afghanistan to 87, according to icasualties.org, a website that keeps a tally of foreign soldiers' deaths in the country.
There are around 130,000 foreign troops in Afghanistan, most of them US soldiers. Since the start of Nato mission in Afghanistan in 2001 at least 2,934 soldier have lost their lives.
The Isaf troops are slated to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, after the Afghan security forces take full security responsibility.
