Coalition soldier dies of wound in S Afghanistan

A service member with the U.S.-led Coalition forces died earlier Monday morning from injuries sustained in a roadside bombing in southern Afghan province of Helmand, said a Coalition statement.

The Coalition soldier sustained injuries in an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) attack on Sunday in an operation, the statement said.

However, it did not disclose the nationality of victim in light of Coalition policy, adding the incident is under investigation.

Mostly British, Canadian and U.S. troops are deploying in the southern Afghanistan under the flags of the NATO-led ISAF and the U.S.-led Coalition forces respectively for maintaining stability and helping in reconstruction.

Militancy and conflicts have claimed the lives of more than 2,300 people with over 700 civilians killed across the war-torn country this year.
