KABUL, Afghanistan — Two more NATO service members have been killed in weekend attacks in Afghanistan, the military coalition said Sunday as Australia's new prime minister vowed to Afghanistan's president that her country would continue to support the war.

This has been the deadliest year of the nine-year Afghan war for international troops, and the rising death toll has shaken the commitment of many NATO countries, where there are rising calls to start drawing down troops quickly. Monthly deaths peaked in June — when 103 NATO forces were killed.
