KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - NATO says three service members have been killed in militant attacks in southern Afghanistan today.
NATO did not give the nationality of the dead service members or provide exact locations of the attacks. One was killed in an insurgent attack and two others by roadside bombs.
Violence in southern Afghanistan has risen in recent months as NATO and Afghan forces try to seize control of the Taliban stronghold of Kandahar.
Four Taliban commanders were also reported killed in three separate incidents.
