AFP – December 12, 2010
Six foreign soldiers were killed on Sunday following an attack by insurgents in Afghanistan’s Taliban-hit south, NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said in a statement.
The coalition force would not give further details of the incident, one of the deadliest single attacks in recent months, and would not reveal the soldiers’ nationalities, in line with its policy.
The attack took to 692 the number of foreign soldiers killed so far in 2010, according to an AFP tally based one kept by icasualties.org.
It is by far the bloodiest year in the nine-year war for the alliance, which lost 521 servicemembers in Afghanistan in 2009.
