Bomb kills NATO service member in Afghanistan

NATO says a bombing in southern Afghanistan has killed one of its service members.

The international military coalition said on Saturday that the service member died after a bomb attack on Friday. It did not provide the victim's nationality or any other details.

NATO typically waits for the relevant national authorities to confirm deaths of service members.

The death was the third in March. A total of 70 NATO service members have been killed so far this year.
