Four NATO-led troops were slain in separate incidents in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday as the country’s president met with the prime minister of Britain, now mourning the death of a British soldier the day before in the south.
Tuesday’s violence occurred in two undisclosed locations in the east. NATO’s International Security Assistance Force said three of the four died in a bombing; the fourth after an insurgent attack. The nationalities of those slain were not immediately released.
On Monday, a British soldier, who was reported missing from a checkpoint in Helmand province, was found dead after an “extensive search” by fellow ISAF members, who found his body in the Nahr-e Saraj District of Helmand Province.
Lt. Col. Tim Purbrick, spokesman for Task Force Helmand, said in a statement the soldier had suffered gunshot wounds. His identity was not immediately released.
