NATO soldier killed in Taliban attack

24 December, 2013

Kabul: A soldier of the NATO-led coalition was killed early Monday in a Taliban attack in eastern Afghanistan, the coalition forces confirmed in a statement.

"An International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service member died after direct fire attack by enemy forces in eastern Afghanistan Monday," the NATO-led ISAF coalition forces said in a press release.

The press release gave neither the nationality of the victim nor details about the incident under the ISAF policy.

More than 84,000 NATO-led foreign troops are currently deployed in Afghanistan.

The latest casualty brings the number of foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan to 157 this year.

End.
