Attacks in the south of Afghanistan have reportedly killed two members of the United States-led military alliance, NATO.

 

 

The forces said the deaths took place on Sunday one in an insurgent attack and the other in a bomb explosion, AP reported. 

 The alliance did not disclose further information and is awaiting confirmation on the part of the families of the soldiers. 

 The deaths increased to at least 78 the number of foreign troops killed in the war-hit country so far this month. 

 The past few months have witnessed a surge in violence in Afghanistan, which has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Afghans and US-led foreign troops. 

 The rising number of foreign casualties has stoked opposition the Afghan war, which has been raging on since 2001, among NATO member states.
