KABUL, Afghanistan — NATO says another two of its service members had died in an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan, raising the toll of those killed in the incident to five.

The international military coalition did not provide details on Sunday's attack or the nationalities of the service members. Though a number of nations have troops in the east, the majority of the forces are American.

NATO announced three of the deaths Sunday, then added two more on Monday.

The deadly strike came a day after Taliban fighters stormed a NATO base in eastern Afghanistan, showing the insurgents' determination to stage attacks despite a surge of US troops and firepower.

The latest deaths bring to 33 the number of coalition service members who have died in Afghanistan so far this month.
