Bomb blasts killed two NATO soldiers and wounded several others in Afghanistan, where insurgent violence is running at its highest level since the 2001 US-led invasion, authorities said. The soldiers were killed and wounded in two separate attacks Thursday in restive southern Afghanistan, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said in a statement. It gave no more details, including the nationalities of the troops. The attack follows several days of bloody combat in the south of the country. On Wednesday, a joint Afghan and coalition force on combat patrol in restive Sha Wali Kot district in southern Kandahar province came under attack from insurgent small-arms fire and rocket propelled grenades, the US-led coalition said in a statement.
