Foreign soldier killed in roadside bombing
The soldier was killed in a roadside bomb attack, an ISAF statement said, without revealing the servicemember's nationality or the exact location.
Mostly, US, British and Canadian soldiers are deployed to the volatile south -- the heartland of the Taliban insurgency.
A day earlier, coalition troops and Afghan police beat back an insurgent assault on a US-run base in Kandahar province. One Afghan interpreter was killed in the group attack.
Since the beginning of the current year, 497 foreign soldiers, including 396 US troops, have been killed in the country, where the NATO-led force lost 711 soldiers in 2010.
