Insurgent attacks have killed three Nato service members in eastern Afghanistan.

A roadside bomb killed two personnel this morning, while another service member died in a separate attack yesterday.

Nato provided no further details on the incidents or the nationalities of the troops.

The deaths bring the number of foreign forces killed in July to 30, and the total so far this year to 245.

Nato also said that it killed a number of insurgents with an airstrike in the Mohammad Agha district of eastern Logar province. It did not provide further details.

Fighting in eastern Afghanistan has been raging since spring as Nato tries to clear the area of insurgents.
