Two NATO servicemen were killed in a bomb blast in south Afghanistan, the military alliance said on Sunday.
The servicemen were killed after their armored personnel carrier hit a roadside bomb, the military alliance said.
Another two NATO servicemen were killed on Saturday, two in the south and one in the east of Afghanistan. Since the beginning of this year, a total of 536 international forces have been killed in Afghanistan compared to 521 servicemen killed in the entire year 2009.
Violence has surged in Afghanistan in recent months, with the Taliban group, which was toppled in a 2001 U.S.-led campaign, staging regular attacks on provincial government officials, police and civilians and planting roadside bombs to target Afghan, U.S. and NATO troops.
