2 NATO service members among 23 killed
Afghan and NATO officials say two members of the U.S.-led coalition are among 23 people killed by roadside bombs and insurgent attacks in southern Afghanistan.
The victims also included 16 Afghan civilians and five policemen.
The civilians were killed in a trio of blasts today along Afghanistan's border with Pakistan. At least 10 other civilians were injured.
The policemen died while responding to a gun battle being waged against insurgents at a checkpoint in Helmand province.
Separately, two NATO service members were killed in southern Afghanistan -- one in a roadside bomb explosion yesterday and the other during an insurgent attack today.
