Kabul: NATO says a roadside bomb has killed two coalition service members in southern Afghanistan where tens of thousands of Afghan and international troops are bracing for an expected resurgence of Taliban attacks this spring.

In a statement released on Sunday, the coalition did not provide the nationalities of the service members, who were killed on Saturday.

Earlier, NATO reported that a third foreign service member died on Saturday when a coalition helicopter crashed in Alasay district of Kapisa province in the east.
The three deaths brought to 133 the number of NATO troops killed in Afghanistan so far this year.
