Roadside bomb kills four NATO soldiers in Afghan east: coalition

KABUL (Reuters) - A roadside bomb killed four service members from the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan's volatile east on Monday, the coalition said in a statement.

ISAF gave no other details, including the nationalities of those killed. Violence has surged across Afghanistan this month since the Afghan Taliban announced the start of its long-awaited "spring offensive."
