KABUL (AP) - A NATO soldier was killed in a hostile incident in southern Afghanistan, the military alliance said Saturday.

The soldier died Friday, the same day four Canadian troops serving with NATO-led force were killed in two separate explosions, the statement said.

The statement did not disclose the victim’s nationality or the exact place of the incident.

Southern Afghanistan is the center of the Taliban-led insurgency. Thousands of new U.S. troops will be joining British, Canadian and Dutch troops in trying to reverse gains by the Taliban and expand governance and security.
