   May 2, 6:06 pm

Kabul, May 2 (Xinhua-ANI): Two soldiers with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) lost their lives as an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) went off in the eastern part of militancy-plagued Afghanistan on Wednesday, a statement released by the alliance here said.

"Two International Security Assistance Force service members died following an improvised explosive device attack in eastern Afghanistan today," the statement confirmed.

However, it did not identify the nationalities of the victims and the exact place of the incident, saying it is the ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities.

Troops mostly from the United States have been stationed in the eastern region to fight Taliban-linked insurgency there.

More than 130 NATO soldiers with majority of them Americans have been killed in Afghanistan since the beginning of this year. (Xinhua-ANI)
