NATO says 3 service members killed in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- NATO says insurgent attacks have killed three of its service members in eastern Afghanistan.

A roadside bomb killed two Sunday morning, while another service member died in a separate attack on Saturday. It provided no further details on the incidents or the nationalities of the troops.

The deaths bring the number of foreign forces killed in July to 30, for a total of 245 so far this year.

NATO also said that it killed a number of insurgents with an airstrike in the Mohammad Agha district of eastern Logar province. It did not provide further details.

Fighting in eastern Afghanistan has been raging since spring as NATO tries to clear the area of insurgents.
