NATO soldier dies in Afghanistan

An Internatiance Force service member died as a result

A soldier with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) died Friday in southern Afghanistan, the ISAF forces confirmed Saturday.

"An Internatiance Force service member died as a result of a non-battle related injury in southern Afghanistan yesterday," the ISAF said in a press release.

The brief release did not disclose the nationality of the victim, only saying "it is ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities."

The latest death brings to 25 the number of foreign soldiers who have been killed in Afghanistan so far this year.(Xinhua)
