Two NATO soldiers killed in Afghanistan

Kabul: Two NATO soldiers were killed in an attack in eastern Afghanistan, the NATO-led forces confirmed in a statement Saturday.

"Two International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service members died as a result of an enemy forces attack in eastern Afghanistan Dec 12, 2014," Xinhua quoted the statement as saying.

The statement gave neither the nationalities of the victims nor the details about the incident under ISAF policy.

An Afghan official told Xinhua earlier Saturday that a NATO-led convoy was hit by a Taliban roadside bombing in Bagram district in eastern Parwan province overnight.

The main base of US and NATO forces is located in the district. The Taliban insurgent group has claimed responsibility for the incident.

The US and NATO-led troops will switch from combat to support role -- NATO-led Resolute Support mission -- which will focus on training, advising and assisting Afghan forces by the end of this month.

Nearly 13,000 foreign troops will be involved in the mission, according to NATO officials.
