Explosion in south Afghanistan kills NATO soldier

NATO says a coalition service member has been killed in a bomb attack in southern Afghanistan.

The coalition said Friday that the service member died a day earlier. NATO provided no other details.

Thirty international troops have died so far this month as the Taliban continues its spring offensive in Afghanistan to regain ground lost during the winter. Fighting has killed 236 coalition members this year.
