KABUL, (Xinhua): Five soldiers of the NATO-led coalition forces died in southern Afghanistan on Monday, the coalition forces confirmed on Tuesday.

“Five International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service members died in southern Afghanistan yesterday,” the NATO-led ISAF said in a statement.

Under the ISAF policy, the brief statement gave neither the nationalities of the victims nor details about how the ill-fated soldiers lost their lives, only saying “It is ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities.”

More than 51,000-strong NATO-led foreign troops, over 33,000 of them Americans, are currently deployed in Afghanistan.

The latest casualties bring the number of foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan to 40 this year.
