KABUL, Afghanistan — A coalition service member was killed in an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan, NATO announced Wednesday, as operations to flush out insurgents moved forward in the Taliban stronghold of Kandahar.

The service member was killed in a fight with insurgents in the south on Tuesday, the coalition said without giving further details. NATO generally does not announce the nationalities of troops killed until after next of kin have been contacted by the service member's country.

This year is already the deadliest of the nine-year war, with 536 dead as of Wednesday. There are about 140,000 international forces in Afghanistan.
