NATO soldiers killed in E. Afghanistan

Two soldiers with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were killed on Friday in a Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast in eastern Afghanistan, the military alliance said.

"Two International Security Assistance Force service members died following an improvised explosive device (IED) attack in eastern Afghanistan today," said a statement issued by ISAF here.

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

Troops mostly from the United States have been stationed in eastern Afghanistan within the framework of ISAF to curb Taliban- linked insurgency there.

A total of 328 NATO soldiers, most of them Americans, have been killed in Afghanistan since beginning this year.
