At least four US-led foreign soldiers have died in separate incidents over the past 24 hours in different parts of the war-torn Afghanistan.
Two foreign soldiers working with North Atlantic Treaty Organization forces were killed in bomb blasts in the country's south and east on Monday, according to a NATO statement.
Meanwhile, two more US-led soldiers died of non-combat injuries in eastern and southern Afghanistan.
The military force did not reveal the nationality of the soldiers or the exact location of the incidents, but Georgian officials said one of their soldiers had been killed in the southern Helmand Province. Most of the foreign troops in the eastern part of Afghanistan are Americans.
According to the icasualties.org website, at least 123 US-led troops have been killed in Afghanistan so far this year.
The rising number of military casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the US and other members of the Western military alliance of NATO, undermining public support for the US-led war.
