KABUL – Roadside bombings killed 12 Afghan civilians and a NATO service member in increasingly volatile eastern Afghanistan, officials said Friday.

NATO did not disclose the nationality or provide other details about the death of the service member Friday.

Nine civilians were killed Thursday by a remote-controlled bomb in the Bar Kunar district of Kunar province, according to Gen. Khalilullah Zaiyi, provincial police chief.

Three civilians were killed and others were wounded in a different blast Thursday in the Qarabagh district of Ghazni province, NATO said.
