Kabul: NATO says two of its service members have been killed in bomb blasts in Afghanistan.

The international military coalition says both died before dawn on Monday — one in the east and one in the south. It did not provide the victims` nationalities or any other details.

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

The latest deaths make a total of 32 NATO service members killed this month, after 31 were killed in January.

Last year was the deadliest year of the nine-year Afghan war for the international forces, with 701 killed.
