Kabul, June 10 (IANS) A NATO soldier was killed in a blast in Afghanistan Monday, the coalition force confirmed.

“One International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service member died following an improvised explosive device attack in eastern Afghanistan today,” Xinhua reported, quoting a statement of the NATO-led ISAF.

The statement gave neither the nationality of the victim nor the details about the incident under the ISAF policy.
