KABUL, Afghanistan — NATO said one of its service members has been killed following a roadside bombing in southern Afghanistan.

The military coalition said the attack occurred Tuesday. It provided no further details.

More than 690 NATO service members have been killed in Afghanistan so far this year, according to a tally by The Associated Press. That makes this the deadliest year for international forces in the almost 10-year-old war.

The international coalition has been pouring troops into Afghanistan's south, mainly in Kandahar and Helmand provinces, where the Taliban remain particularly active.
